Cutting-edge technology for the future of European rail
The EU-funded RECET4Rail project’s ambition is to provide essential knowledge and competence that can lead the improvement to high technology readiness levels of Shift2Rail traction demonstrations on trains developed by Shift2Rail members. This collaboration paves the way for future key developments in fields such as digitalisation applied to traction, environmental sustainability (especially devising carbon-free traction systems) and reinforcement of standardisation to lower complexity and costs. Four workstreams are envisaged: 3D additive manufacturing and new manufacturing technologies; wireless dynamic charging for urban vehicles based on silicon carbide (SiC) semiconductors and high power Li-ion batteries sizing; investigations on reliability of traction components and lifetime mechanisms; big data and artificial intelligence for smart and predictive maintenance of traction systems.
