This report validates milestone MS2 (agreement on specifications for further innovations).

Energy concept for cargo condition monitoring

Deliverable report presenting the required setup to enable the powering of the cargo condition monitoring system (potentially using a combination of vibration-based and RF-based energy harvesting technologies).

Models for reliability, statistical information, real time health status of the rolling stock, prognostic analysis, and economic data

A report illustrating the predictive analytical models developed for different types of damage relevant to the freight wagon.

Project management and quality plan

Deliverable report including guidelines, Gantt, Deliverable and Milestone tables, document and presentation templates, deliverable peer review process, risk register, etc.

Modelling and analyses of novel lightweight design solutions

Deliverable report including the simulation results and analyses in relation with the structural strength and vehicle dynamics.

Exploitation Report

An exploitation report about market uptake / standardisation & regulation potential will be delivered at the end of the project.

Set up an exploitation plan for the project

An exploitation plan for INNOWAG main results will be delivered at the beginning of the work package.

Wizard tool for maintenance policy optimisation

A report describing the Wizard tool for maintenance policy optimisation, i.e. a guided procedure for the operators to define the optimal maintenance policy based on reliability model of the system, the condition monitoring information available and cost data.

Report on the use of the results by Shift2Rail

This report will describe the level of use and acceptance of the results in the S2R-CFM-IP5-01-2015: Development of functional requirements for sustainable and attractive European rail freight, and more in general in relevant Shift2Rail IPs and CCAs.
