Locomotive bOgie Condition mAinTEnance

Project description

Advanced technology for locomotive bogie maintenance

The good condition of freight locomotive bogies is essential for the optimal operation of the railway sector. As a consequence, the improvement of their maintenance methods and quality of services as well as the reduction of associated costs represent a constant concern for the sector. The EU-funded LOCATE project comprises a consortium of six institutions from the academic, business and professional sectors, specialising in the development of critical electronic systems, sensing technologies, railway management and infrastructure research. The project is developing cost-effective methodologies to access the condition of locomotive bogies to implement a condition-based maintenance programme. LOCATE will contribute to improve the availability of the rolling stock and optimise maintenance.
