Measuring and monitoring devices for railway assets

The main challenge of this call is to identify specific monitoring and upgrading solutions addressed to bridges and tunnels (TD 3.5) and to develop monitoring solutions for trains and track geometry monitoring as well as data collection from fail-safe systems. In order to address the challenges, the proposed research should address all the following work-streams described below: Research on monitoring of bridges and tunnels including upgrading solutions, to support the aims of TD 3.5; and Research on railway measuring and monitoring systems, to support the aims of TD 3.7. The technologies to be under this action are expected to have a significant impact on the S2R objectives concerning costs, reliability and capacity.
