STAND ALONE SYSTEM FOR PROVIDING REAL-TIME, ACCURATE, AND RELIABLE MONITORING AND WARNING OF ANY INCIDENTS AND DANGSYSTEM FOR COMPLETE MONITORING, ALERTING AND AUTOMATING OF THE RAILWAY INFRASTRUCTURE

Project description

On track for a new railway system

Railways represent one of the most important parts of the transportation system due to their reliable and cost-efficient performance and low environmental impact. However, existing railway infrastructure relies on 1950s technology and on systems that have high maintenance and operation costs and do not allow the detection of foreign objects on rails or damage due to extreme weather conditions. An innovative solution has been developed by Spanish company NGRT using vibration detection to identify anomalies on tracks. The EU-funded SAFETRACK project proposes the development of new applications based on this solution, capable of identifying derailments and foreign obstacles on rails and informing train drivers sufficiently in advance. The new technology will be prepared for the market, offering reduced costs and increased safety in railway transport.
