Artificial intelligence as a challenge for approval processes in rail transport

In the current issue of “Eisenbahntechnische Rundschau” (issue 4/2022) a technical article by PD Dr.-Ing. habil. Lars Schnieder has been published.

Digital technologies are penetrating ever further into all areas of the rail system. Artificial intelligence enables predictive maintenance and increases the efficiency of rail operations. The basis for AI systems is formed by powerful algorithms for environment perception, which also include safety-relevant functions. The use of non-deterministic algorithms and decision-making processes that are impervious to humans require a paradigm shift in the approval of technical systems.

In the article, Lars Schnieder outlines protection goals, product liability issues and the future regulatory framework for AI systems outlined by the European Commission.
