On 25-26 August 2020, Nomad Digital attended SmartTransit’s first virtual event. The transit focused on agencies across Northern America, who were and still are facing challenges within the rail industry.
Here at Nomad, we are passionate about supporting charities who make a real difference to people’s lives, and we are committed to making a meaningful contribution to the communities where we work and live.
Nomad is offering all staff 2-days each year to volunteer their time, showing a commitment to really give back. "At Nomad we are passionate about making a difference in our local communities, nationally and globally – striving to make changes that count."

Prior to the Onboard Data Centre, traditional train technology companies such as Nomad Digital have been installing connectivity hardware onboard. The problem is every application added to the train possesses similarities, whether this is obtaining its own hardware or discrete network - increasing the quantity of connectivity hardware on-board.
In the rail industry, the majority of equipment installed tends to have a long product lifecycle. Take for example your central Communications Control Unit (CCU), they will last up to 10 years on average and are considered to be a valuable asset, handling the communication between the train and shoreside infrastructure.
Thermal cameras can be an effective tool used worldwide to reignite the public transport industry, whilst fighting the spread of Covid-19. Measurements happen in real-time, no physical contact is needed, and data can be obtained from behind the scenes.
Maintenance within railway has evolved considerably, influenced by technology, globalisation and the awareness that we have limited resources.
