[Case Study] An example of Open Innovation in Railway with Alstom™
In this case study, discover how Alstom™ was able to apply Open Innovation in railway to solve a century-old problem using the ideXlab platform.
In fact, dead leaves cause a loss of adhesion between the rails and the wheels of the trains, particularly because of the transformation of the leaves at the passage of the trains. The transformed material causes a loss of adhesion between the wheel and the rail which lengthens the braking distances. This phenomenon, which disrupts the timing of trains, is causing delays and other inconveniences for travelers and financial losses for operators.
This example with Alstom™ can shed light on the effectiveness of Open Innovation within a company!
