We feel your challenge as ours.

Leaders from the mobility industry count on CAF Digital Services as a partner. We facilitate the transition of mobility agents towards a more digital world. We make it easier for them to make decisions, to understand the data collected, adapting to their needs instead of them having to adapt to our technology.

They rely on Leadmind as a leading data platform in the railway industry for smart dynamic maintenance and higher operational efficiency. LeadMind helps operators and maintainers save time and costs, always prioritizing the non-negotiable safety of travel and passengers.

LeadMind its being a key testing process enhancer and a key technology for incident resolution and thus, it favors the delivery of a train that has been intensely tested, with greater quality and precision.

Oslo tram: Easing diagnostics in the testing phase

The advantages of LeadMind, specifically for units at this stage are:

  • Start from capturing high quality data
  • Providing real time information and reducing diagnostic times
  • Prepare a datalake for future use cases: from safety to predictive maintenance, passenger counting or energy consumption which has been started to be developed in coordination with Sporveien.

Success story image
6 months have been enough to obtain tangible results with LeadMind, CAF´s digital platform, in the maintenance of the fleet TMB (Transportes Metropolitanos de Barcelona) of line 5, specifically the S/5000.

Barcelona Metro achieves record-time results with CAF´s advanced analytics

LeadMind is facilitating the monitoring of the health status of the fleet and applying the ISO 17359 condition-based maintenance methodology. In order to improve the maintenance strategy, reduce the costs and ensure the availability and safety of passengers on board the Barcelona metro. It has been achieved:

  • Different indicators have been proposed, evaluated and validated.
  • Detection of anomalies and predict breakdowns that may cause an incidence in the service.
  • Anomalies in the operation of doors, compressors and air conditioning have been detected with great accuracy thanks to LeadMind algorithms.
  • This information has allowed, on several occasions, a predictive intervention to the first symptoms.
