How We Do It? Data-driven rail fleet maintenance, case VR FleetCare and Amazon Web Services
28. November 2019 Articles
For the testing stage, VR FleetCare has set up seven measurement points at interlockings located at major traffic points around the railway network. They will be used to test the operation of some 80 switches. Based on the measurement data, incipient switch failures can be detected from deviating turntable performance. Ideally, this will help prevent traffic disruptions due to such failures.
