SmartVision™

The Data-Driven Future of Maintenance
For trains, trams, metro and track

Multi-fleet Remote Diagnostics & Predictive Condition-based Maintenance System

SmartVision ™ is a modular remote condition monitoring system designed for monitoring various trains (trains, locomotives and passenger cars, regional trains, metro trains and trams) integrating with different technologies and systems. Its scalable architecture enables it to be deployed cost-efficiently starting from a small fleet of a few trains all the way to multiple fleets with hundreds of trains each.

SmartVision™ also incorporates an industry-leading solution to monitor the condition of tracks and track assets from in-service trains, detecting problem areas to provide a timely view to the condition of the track infrastructure and thus enabling well-timed condition-based service interactions.

INCREASE
PROFITABILITY

Optimise operations and resources to improve competitiveness and increase asset availability

OPTIMISE
MAINTENANCE

Real-time monitoring enables faster communications and operational scheduling

PREDICT & PREVENT
FAULTS

Reduce unplanned maintenance using optimum detection capability for the earliest detection of events

IMPROVE
SATISFACTION

Well maintained rolling stock and track running on time contributes to a rise in passenger satisfaction

SmartVision ™


SmartVision™ is a flexible solution to create actionable information, which enables the operator to exploit the data collected from the rolling stock and tracks to optimise maintenance procedures.

The SmartVision™ architecture balances the benefits and capabilities of edge and cloud processing for effective data management both on-board the train and for wireless communication to the cloud.

Start with data you already have.

SmartVision™ can be tailored to interface to a variety of data sources.

CONNECT TO EXISTING
SYSTEMS

SmartVision™ is capable of connecting to existing systems and integrating with pre-existing data, potentially removing the need for additional sensors and edge processing components. 

RECEIVE EARLY
WARNINGS

SmartVision™ will give early
warnings of the development of
faults, reducing unplanned maintenance and optimising maintenance schedules.

TAKE APPROPRIATE
MAINTENANCE ACTIONS

SmartVision™ alerts the user
to appropriate maintenance
actions in advance of the fault developing to reduce service
affecting failures.

SmartVision ™ incorporates:

MODULAR ARCHITECTURE

Build system functionality in stages from a simple data monitor through to a fully capable predictive/prescriptive monitoring system.

MULTI-FLEET FUNCTIONALITY

Manage fleets of multiple assets from different generations, allowing access to data for the whole fleet from a single system.

CUSTOMISABLE VISUALISATIONS

Personalize the appearance of the dashboard to meet the needs and requirements of each individual user.

SECURE DATA MANAGEMENT

High level of protection with cybersecurity measures taken to guarantee the privacy of customer data and avoid intrusion.

SCALABLE CLOUD COMPUTING

Available as a Software as a Service (SaaS) providing a turn-key solution for rolling stock and track condition monitoring.

ONLINE MONITORING

Wireless 3G/4G/WiFi router provides a secure mobile data connection to send data to the cloud in real-time.

Optimum Detection Capability

SmartVision™ incorporates Humaware’s Adaptive Anomaly Detector which provides optimum detection capability with low false alert rates. This enables SmartVision™ to provide users with trusted actionable information to optimise maintenance schedules and increase asset availability.

Track Condition Monitoring

SmartVision™ provides a unique solution to use sensor data from in-service rolling stock to capture both the response of the vehicle as felt by driver/passengers and the direct vehicle/track interaction. Measurement data is collected both from the wheels with a hard contact to the track, and from the movements of the car body, which is isolated from the track by suspension, enabling a comprehensive understanding of how the track condition affects the moving vehicle.

The system contains a hierarchical track topology model of the rail network, which when correlated with SmartVision™ on-vehicle GPS information, enables the location of track related events to be pin-pointed.

Train Condition Monitoring

SmartVision™ provides a fully integrated system for the monitoring of rolling stock. The on-board sensors and sensor gateway collect relevant asset health information which is transformed into meaningful condition indicators.

After initial pre-processing and data cleansing (quality/stability checks), these are sent to the SmartVision™ cloud application where diagnostic processing and prognostic forecasting is performed.

The condition indicators are parameters that are influenced by asset health, for example, increasing vibration due to wheel bearing degradation or an HVAC system not providing enough cooling with abnormally high power consumption could indicate filter congestion. The SmartVision™ user outputs are relevant warnings/alerts, diagnostic reports and remaining useful life estimates.
