SmartFleet is a fleet management system that provides a clear and immediate understanding of key performance metrics across an operational fleet.
By providing continuous, real-time condition assessments of on-board systems such as doors, traction and brake systems, SmartFleet is an essential tool for delivering a proactive and cost-efficient rail operation.
SmartFleet works by applying a series of parameters to filter and enhance the data captured from asset monitoring applications. This helps to ensure the information presented to operational teams is restricted to the essential information they require to perform their duties, without the distraction of irrelevant, background data.
In the event of a detected fault, the system immediately alerts the central Helpdesk with precise information about the situation. The Helpdesk can then determine how long the vehicle should remain in service and explain the appropriate response to the driver.
At the same time, the maintenance teams - equipped with a full diagnosis of the fault - can schedule their work and order components before the vehicle arrives at the workshop.
This means that, rather than using time in the depot to search for faults (or apply short-term fixes), maintenance teams can target the specific issue and return the vehicle to service as soon as possible.
