South Korea has set an ambitious target to reduce rail accident fatalities by 50% by 2027.


Previously, maintenance staff had to conduct time-consuming and expensive inspections of vehicles, taking them out of operation.Additionally, the lack of real-time monitoring and diagnosis of critical parts presented significant challenges, leading to difficulties in detecting defects that pose risks to railway safety and reliability.


To improve railway safety, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport sprang into action by launching a drive to improve the visibility of critical parts on trains. Subsequently, advanced monitoring technology was rolled out to bolster rail security across the country.


In this article, we will delve into how Globiz partnered with Moxa together, and more importantly, how the use of intelligent condition-based maintenance (CBM) is revolutionizing the industry and boosting railway safety.





  • Maintenance staff had to conduct time-consuming and expensive inspections, taking vehicles out of operation. 

  • CBM is a maintenance strategy that uses data from sensors and other sources to monitor the condition of railway assets. While CBM held global value, its operation and standards remained underdeveloped. Regulatory bodies, operators, and solution providers had to navigate uncharted waters to implement CBM independently.

  • The development of a CBM system is a long and winding road to building a successful system.


  • For over ten years, Globiz worked on developing a CBM software platform to conduct sophisticated analysis and fault detection.

  • Moxa’s industrial-grade computer enables data processing and edge computing for predictive maintenance while the train is in motion.

  • Moxa assembled a virtual expert team comprising technical experts from headquarters and local personnel to ensure the success of the partnership. 


  • The success of this project marks a significant milestone for Globiz, as it is the first of its kind in South Korea. 

  • Globiz estimates that the benefits of this project include: a 25 to 35% reduction in life-cycle costs (LCC), a 20 to 30% reduction in spare parts costs, and a 40% increase in the lifetime of the devices.

  • The system's introduction and continuous data collection will help protect more passengers and routes in the future.
