Published: 8 February 2017

A State-of-the-art that can be used at the decision of selecting measuring equipment that delivers cost / benefit effects by monitoring the condition of disruption and sensitive systems and components of the railway system.

State-of-the-Art aims to describe possible technique (measuring equipment) and its ability to measure and assess the condition of the vehicle and track, but also to monitor adverse events, such as animals in track. The goal is to deliver a state-of-the-art that can be used at the decision of selecting measuring equipment that delivers cost / benefit effects by monitoring the condition of disruption and sensitive systems and components of the railway system. State-of-the-Art will also identify criteria for the selection of future monitoring.
