How IoT Brings Railway Efficiency to Dutch Rail Network
The Netherlands is a small, but bustling, country — humming with activity. It’s home to more than 17 million residents—as well as employees of corporate giants, including ING, Unilever and Royal Dutch Shell. Public transportation is thus integral to urban life in the region of Randstad — which includes Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht — and is one of the most densely populated in Europe. ProRail manages the Dutch rail network (owned by Nederlandse Spoorwegen). The Dutch railway is the busiest in the European Union, enabling 1.1 million train journeys every day. But railways can be hobbled by aging infrastructure.
