Smart data for rail freight transport
The S2R Strategic Master Plan is the key document adopted by the European Commission that defines EU strategy aiming to support the development, improvement and competitiveness of the European rail sector. New technologies are applied such as those concerning the development of rail freight transport. The EU-funded FR8RAIL III project will study improvement possibilities through smart data applications in 6 different issues: condition-based maintenance (CBM) for the better decision of maintenance needs, real-time network management, Intelligent Video Gate to improve efficiency in railroad terminals, extend the market for freight wagons, telematics and Electrification and next-generation Freight Loco. The project will approach various aspects of the freight ecosystem aiming to increase EU freight rail transport competitiveness.
