SmartVision ™ Train Condition Monitoring
A Fully Integrated Train Condition Monitoring System for The Monitoring of Rolling Stock
Developed in Collaboration with VR FleetCare
SmartVision™ Train Condition Monitoring is a modular remote condition monitoring system designed for monitoring various rolling stock (trains, locomotives and passenger cars, regional trains, metro trains and trams) using different technologies (MVB, WTB, Ethernet, serial links and additional external sensors). Thanks to the scalable architecture, it can be deployed cost-efficiently starting from a small fleet of a few trains all the way to multiple fleets with hundreds of trains each.
The SmartVision™ overall solution portfolio offers a wide range of applications including Remote Diagnostics, Condition Monitoring of trains and track and Predictive Analytics. The system can initially be implemented based on Remote Diagnostics and later be stepwise enhanced with new applications to support the development of the maintenance process.
The SmartVision™ Data Acquisition Gateway is installed in each train and collects data from the train and sends it via 3G/4G/5G or Wi-Fi to the cloud using the versatile and secure SmartVision™ API protocol. Additional sensors can be added to measure e.g. temperature, pressure, current or vibration of HVACs, doors, compressors or axle bearings and traction motors on bogies.
The Gateway will send new diagnostics event data as soon as it is available from any of the onboard subsystems and combine it with environmental data from the moment when the event was received.
ENABLE SITUATIONAL AWARENESS
MAXIMISE TRAIN AVAILABILITY AND RELIABILITY
IMPROVE FLEET PERFORMANCE
SmartVision ™ Applications
SmartVision™ comprehensively monitors and analyses many elements of the rolling stock: bogies, wheel bearings, door, HVAC, engines etc, with the objective of generating diagnostic and remaining useful life forecasts based on asset health.
SmartVision™ Train Condition Monitoring User Interface
The SmartVision™ tool is accessed via web browser. The graphical user interface can be customized to match the needs of various organizational groups based on the maintenance process of the customer and the specifics of the fleets. Different user profiles can be created for different functional groups and each of them will have user interfaces optimized for their specific tasks. Thus, operating centre, maintenance planning, depot or fleet management personnel can all be provided with a SmartVision™ graphical user interface tailored to their specific needs.
