AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) Teams Up with JR Kyushu Railway Company for Cutting-edge Solution

Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD) stock gains attention with news of a collaboration with JR Kyushu Railway Company, utilizing AMD Kria K26 System-on-Module to modernize track inspection.

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has unveiled a groundbreaking partnership with JR Kyushu Railway Company. The collaboration will see the AMD Kria K26 System-on-Module (SOM) employed to overhaul track inspection procedures. The AI-driven solution will improve the accuracy and efficiency of safety inspections across the Japanese bullet train network operators.

JR Kyushu, overseeing more than 1,455 miles of railway tracks, has traditionally depended on manual track inspections. Aiming to enhance safety, the company has embraced a tech-centric approach, deploying a solution crafted by Tokyo Artisan Intelligence (TAI). This cutting-edge innovation comprises a vision computing box affixed to a cart that harnesses the AMD Kria K26 SOM for swift image processing and advanced AI capabilities. Such a setup enables the identification of track irregularities, such as loose bolts, at operational speeds of up to 12 mph.

The Kria K26 SOM’s embedded platform features a bespoke AMD Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC, DDR memory, and other elements engineered for resilience and adaptability to the diverse conditions of JR Kyushu’s rail system. The adoption of this technology marks a transition from labor-intensive, on-foot inspections towards a more cost-effective and operationally efficient approach.

Chetan Khona, AMD’s Senior Director of Industrial, Vision, Healthcare, and Sciences Markets, underscored JR Kyushu’s use of the Kria SOM as a testament to the transformative power of edge AI computing and programmable SOMs in automating and optimizing a range of applications.
