Infrastructure Measuring and Monitoring – 23 November 2016
Why should we execute track measuring? Is there a benefit of condition monitoring? Find out more at Day 2 of the Intelligent Rail Summit 2016 on 23 November in Naples, Italy.
Since decades, track-recording cars measure a variety of signals. Superficially, they are used to guarantee safety, i.e. determine whether a value exceeds an intervention limit. Over the last years infrastructure managers also started to collect and store the data in order to monitor the track’s condition. Consequently, measurement data evolved as a necessary and useful tool in pro-active railway asset management. Analysing the track’s behaviour over time can lead to a prediction of maintenance and track renewal amounts for upcoming years. Thus a proper condition-based budget planning can be established which is valuable for in-house as well as outsourced maintenance execution.
