This is the final report of the I-RAIL project, which was funded under the European Community's (EC) Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and aimed to improve the efficiency of rail inspection and minimise the occurrence of catastrophic failures through the implementation of a novel inspection system that could be installed on any type of train.

The document firstly outlines the project background and objectives and then summarises the most significant findings, with the aid of explanatory figures and graphical representations. It also presents the proposed methodology and the decision support tool that was developed and summarises the conducted field trials. Finally, the report refers to the potential impact of I-RAIL results and closes with the implemented dissemination and exploitation strategies.
