Listening to railways

We pioneer the use of fiber optic vibration sensing to deliver railway insights across multiple disciplines. We monitor track condition, detect trespass and cable security events, and alert operators to natural hazards such as landslides or rock falls.

We create a digital twin / SonicTwin® of entire rail routes, to deliver unparalleled historical, actual and predictive railway information. Using standard, often pre-existing, fiber optic cables we enable railways to make better decisions.

Sensonic, an innovative leader in providing insightful solutions for railways, is pleased to announce the appointment of Vivek Caroli as its new Chief Executive Officer. 

Vivek has a proven track record of over 30 years of success in rail globally, along with extensive experience with both Sensonic and Frauscher. He was previously the Chief Revenue Officer of Sensonic, where he propelled several business milestones. In the past, Vivek has also served as the Managing Director for Frauscher North America. In this role, Vivek was crucial in introducing the Frauscher Group to the North American railway industry and establishing an extremely successful business presence from scratch. In his new role, Vivek will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of the company's operations, including strategy, finance, business development, marketing, and product development. He will work closely with all stakeholders to continue to drive both growth and innovation at Sensonic. 

As Sensonic continues to develop, demonstrate, and prove its innovative fibre optic sensing solutions for railway clients, we are also preparing for the next phase of business growth. We believe that Vivek's expertise and leadership will guide the company towards continued success and help strengthen and deepen customer partnerships.  

Vivek's experience will stand him in good stead as his acumen, leadership, and expertise in scaling start-ups, make him the ideal person to lead Sensonic into a successful next stage. 

Vivek succeeds Christian Pucher, who continues as the Managing Director of Sensonic, Austria and Chief Marketing Officer. This strategic move ensures a smooth transition and a continued focus on our mission to empower railways to revolutionise their operations.
