Well maintained rolling stock and track running on time contributes to a rise in passenger satisfaction
SmartVision Track Condition Monitoring
Developed in collaboration with VR FleetCare
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.
