Free webinar: the next steps in wayside train monitoring

RailTech dives into maintenance and prognostics in a free webinar on Friday August 6. What are new ways in which data from trackside monitoring can be used, not only for rail maintenance, but also for rolling stock owners? We hope to welcome you digitally at 13:00 CET.

Wayside train monitoring systems (WTMS) can measure the operational performance of rolling stock and infrastructure assets as well as the direct surroundings. To discuss what the (future) possibilities in trackside monitoring are, we have invited international experts from across the railway sector for this webinar.

During the one-hour interactive webinar, we will talk with the following experts about what is new and what future possibilities of WTMS there are:

WTMS at ProRail

System manager WTMS and Real-time monitoring at Dutch infrastructure manager ProRail Juliette van Driel will give insights and examples of how ProRail uses the data from Wayside Monitoring for their own maintenance, but also what data can deliver for the operators and wagon owners. ProRail recently renewed its software, how will they use this ‘mine of information’?

The possibilities of AI

An expert in condition monitoring and AI, professor Diego Galar of the Swedish University of Luleå knows a lot about trackside monitoring of rail. Is using Wayside Train Monitoring an equivalent of using on-board monitoring, or are there advantages? And what are examples of how AI can be used to makes sense of this data?

Gaining more from data

How can you get the most of WTMS data for rolling stock? Stefan Distelberger, managing director CSO of Diagnostic and Monitoring Technologies for rolling stock at Voestalpine talks about how, by using new methods, there is more to gain from existing monitoring systems. Without always having to install more measuring equipment.

Curious about what these experts have to say about WTMS and the next steps for rail? Register for the webinar here and join the webinar on 6 August, 13.00 – 14:00 CEST.
