InfraMonitoring

Infrastructure monitoring  in motion

How can you improve the availability of track infrastructure - and plan your maintenance regime - without access to up-to-date information about its current condition?

Asset condition data captured once or twice a year by specialist measurement vehicles – often during the night – cannot possibly provide a realistic picture of the network’s true condition.

With  InfraMonitoring, our track monitoring technology, we can provide continuous condition assessments through an approach that is both more efficient and more cost-effective, per kilometre, than traditional track assessment methods.

By installing sensors and data-loggers onboard regular passenger traffic,  InfraMonitoring  accumulates track condition data throughout the operational day, providing continual access to richer, more frequent data sets captured in a true operating environment.

The data are collated, analysed and reported directly to maintenance teams via bespoke dashboards, enabling them to identify potential issues and take preventative action, rather than merely react to faults that have already occurred.

How  InfraMonitoring can help you achieve your goals:

Increase availability and reliability

When it comes to track availability, the goal is often two-fold: to uphold current availability levels; but also exploit opportunities to unlock extra network capacity. One way this can be achieved is through a more proactive approach. Prevention is better than the cure, so rather than responding after the event, systems like  InfraMonitoring help you take control.

Safety

Track geometry is a key aspect of  InfraMonitoring. With more in-depth awareness of the track condition – such as the location of potential derailment risks - maintenance teams can prevent defects from developing in the first place.

Cost reduction

InfraMonitoring can also make maintenance more cost-effective. With continuous monitoring, you can plan interventions at an earlier stage and to a schedule that you control. That means it is not only cheaper, but also more efficient.

In short, how does  InfraMonitoring add value? We’ve listed some of the benefits below.

  • Reduction of incidents: taking preventive actions avoid the occurrence of issues;
  • Alerts: hot spot detection and monitoring of repair work;
  • KPIs: nationwide quality check and management;
  • Detailed insights: up-to-date data relayed through a web-based interface;
  • Trend analyses: fast trend change detection and performance assessment between various track designs.
