Bentley Systems, Inc., has launched a $100 million corporate venture capital fund to “invest in promising technology companies addressing the emerging opportunity for infrastructure digital twin solutions for roadways, railways, waterways, bridges, utilities, industrial facilities, and other infrastructure assets.”
RAILWAY AGE, NOVEMBER 2020 ISSUE: CN’s Autonomous Track Inspection Program (ATIP) uses railcars equipped with sensors and artificial intelligence that automatically scan and analyze tracks while operating in revenue-service freight trains.
Bentley Systems, Inc., has hired three new executives for its infrastructure engineering software business and announced the honorees of its Year in Infrastructure 2020 Awards. Also, Bentley and Microsoft Corp. have expanded a strategic alliance focused on “advancing infrastructure for smart city urban planning and smart construction.”

CN has awarded a multi-year contract to Duos Technologies, Inc., for complete North American service, support, maintenance and spare components sourcing for the seven Railcar Inspection Portals (rip®) currently in operation along its network. Additionally, engineering software firm Bentley Systems, Inc., has established Virtuosity to combine subscriptions to Bentley applications, such as OpenRail, with training and expert services.
Despite the dramatic nature of railroad accidents, conveying goods and passengers by rail is the safest form of ground transportation when compared to other modes. Railway owner-operators are continually finding and implementing new safety innovations that could help prevent accidents and disruptions to service.
Bentley Systems’ has released OpenGround Cloud, allowing infrastructure project teams to manage and access current and historical geotechnical data for the modeling, simulation and analysis of ground conditions.
With around 55% of the world’s population already living in cities, and the United Nations World Urbanization Report predicting the number to rocket to in excess of 68% over the next 30 years, rail really is the only way to keep our cities moving. When you factor in the urgent need to respond to climate change and work toward meeting carbon neutral targets set by governments around the world, against a backdrop of tighter budgets, shorter deadlines, and fewer skilled people, one could be forgiven for thinking that as an industry we have an impossible task on our hands.
