Founded in 2015 by four former employees of Israel-based arms manufacturers Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. and Elbit Systems Ltd., Rail Vision develops an automated early warning system (AEWS) for locomotives. When mounted on a train, the company's thermal sensor can identify hazards at a distance of up to two miles under different weather and lighting conditions, alerting both the train’s staff and the command and control center.
