Railmonitor has developed an intelligent and smart cloud-based condition monitoring system for the railway industry. We bring all relevant data together in one place, so you can make the right decisions.

Factors such as track condition, groundwater level, traffic volume, weather data as well as other measurements can all be part of the online monitoring process and drive actual forecasts.


overview of data

Our modular solution combines application-specific experience from the railway industry with the power of Internet Of Things (IOT), Big Data and Cloud computing. The base system has modules for storing and monitoring data and for generating alarms in the form of e-mails or text messages if a critical situation occurs. Furthermore, there’s a display and reporting module, which provides an overview of data – current and historic. A module for more advanced analysis of the data is scheduled. This module will in particular include elements adapted to specific applications in order to combine automatically collected data with application-specific models.

The fact that the system runs on computers in the cloud makes it very reliable and easy to extend and update. New features are therefore available as soon as they have been developed.

To use the system requires only a browser, so you can choose whether you want to work from a PC, a tablet or from your mobile phone.


Using award winning Senceive FlatMesh wireless sensor system technology, installation and commissioning is incredibly easy and cost effective. You get real-time monitoring of cant, twist & settlement or embankment slip – this is what we call simple

Traditional norm-based maintenance can be very expensive without necessarily providing the desired security. Automated continuous monitoring can both maximize safety and reduce costs significantly.


We are a Danish based company with an international agenda. We strive to meet the challenges of getting the right information for making the right decisions.



Railmonitor currently collaborates with Scandinavian surveyors, contractors, railway companies and global industry partners. We are still looking for interested technological and commercial international partners.

The availability of reliable system for continuous delivery of decision power, will revolutionize the rail industry.
