The goal is to develop an accurate condition monitoring tools to be decision support for rail track maintenance actions.
The goal is to develop a train based system for monitoring track defects and rail track components
Automate the inspection of rail fasteners, defect insulation joints and other rail defects, using a robust system based on magnetic field variations measurement.
This new context driven Bayesian maintenance scenario will promote sustainable and cost-effective asset efficiency optimization in railway PHM and it will help us move closer to the ultimate goal of intelligent maintenance.
Develop and field test IoT data loggers for condition based maintenance of rail infrastructure.
The aim of the project is to develop a predictive maintenance approach for the Stockholm subway and commuter train traffic.
Proposing a physics based framework to predict ballast degradation.
The project aims to harmonise Swedish-English asset management definitions and to assess operation and maintenance data quality within rail transportation
Advanced statistical analysis of data and signals that are acquired via sensors and control systems within the railway and via external measurement and monitoring.
IN2RAIL is to set the foundations for a resilient, consistent, cost-efficient, high capacity European network by delivering important building blocks that unlock the innovation potential that exists in the SHIFT²RAIL Innovation Programmes (IP) 2 and 3.
Luleå University of Technology acts as a linked third party to Trafikverket with the responsibility of performing research activities with developing an overall concept for Intelligent Asset Management.
This project aims to address the challenge in prolonging the lifetime of rolling stock wheels by developing what we call an integrated maintenance strategy review and optimization (MSRO) approach.
Due to limited resources and limited land area, the only way to adapt the infrastructure capacity to the expected increased transportation demand is to optimise the performance of the existing infrastructure.
This research approaches the problem (MRL estimation of rolling stock) as a system because the vehicle and the track cannot be improved further in isolation of each other.
The goal of railway infrastructure managers is to keep the RAMS parameters of railway system within acceptable thresholds at lowest possible cost. An efficient an effective way of achieving this goal is to employ applicable and effective maintenance and renewal strategy.
The overall goal of this project is to explore and describe the importance of SA in maintenance and to recommend how to develop and provide better SA for intelligent maintenance systems.
