Berlin, Germany, [March 10, 2022] Pix4D is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a competitive tender for Deutsche Bahn to provide solutions and services for upcoming railway infrastructure projects through the analysis and visualization of drone images.
Pix4D will be using its products PIX4Dcloud, PIX4Dmapper, and PIX4Dmatic for processing and analyzing drone imagery for construction progress monitoring and quality assurance. This is an important building block for the digitalization of Deutsche Bahn’s infrastructure management.
The contract will be managed by DB Netz AG, the infrastructure operator of Deutsche Bahn AG, which maintains the largest rail network in Europe that measures around 34,000 kilometers. Deutsche Bahn is committed to climate neutral operations by 2040 and this project is part of ongoing efforts to implement more efficient and environmentally friendly infrastructure maintenance and workflows.
“Deutsche Bahn plays a leading role in the mobility shift towards CO2 neutrality and the protection of the environment for future generations. We are very pleased to be able to contribute to strengthening their railroad projects with our products and services,” Pix4D Regional Managing Director, Henrik Battke.
Pix4D’s services are backed by 11 years of research in cutting-edge photogrammetry software and hardware. The products have desktop and cloud capabilities to enable straightforward sharing across project stakeholders. Pix4D’s services will be required for several years and managed out of their Berlin office.
