As part of our company growth we are looking to appoint a solutions engineer to help us roll out our next generation on-line location and condition monitoring platform to more customers in the railway sector.

Background

Machines With Vision (MWV) is a fast-growing technology company developing a transformational mapping solution for use in the rail industry and beyond. Along with long-distance railways, metros and light rail systems are the foundation of city transportation and are critical to addressing climate change. Building and maintaining railways is expensive but ripe for digital transformation.

We are based in Edinburgh, UK, and over the last 5 years we have developed our key technology from proof-of-concepts and prototypes into a commercially deployed solution with a major national operator.

Our solution organises condition data acquired by mobile sensors, recorded by railway infrastructure owners, into a digital millimetre-accurate geospatial condition map that we call mobile sensor data mapping. This enables efficient subsequent analysis of infrastructure conditions such as trending and change detection for making markedly more efficient maintenance decisions.
