Xomnia is a word combining the letter ‘X’ – the unknown – and “Omnia” – Latin for everything. Our team of data scientists and big data engineers are trained to find the undefined – X – in all the relevant data sources – Omnia. This unknown – X – is untapped business value. Combining the X and Omnia you get the Xomnia spirit. Eager, curious and dedicated people, who have the belief that the future is big data.
ProRail is the infrastructure manager of the Dutch Railways. Xomnia has helped us in developing predictive models for two kinds of rail infra disturbances: rail defects and trespassers (people along the track). The trespasser dashboards predict the days and locations with an increased risk of people along the track (unallowed), based on numerous data sources like locations of schools, holidays, weather etc. With this dashboard, we can focus our surveillance capacity more effectively. The predictive models for rail defects identify spots in the railway network with a high risk of cracks in the rail and subsidence of the track, based on several data sources of track condition and influencers. Next to this, Xomnia has advised ProRail in the setup of our Big data platform.
