Embedded Train Integrity Monitoring Systems

START: 09/2018

OPEN
The advance of the technology allows to transfer the location of the execution of functions. In the case of the railroad, functions performed on the ground are being transferred on-board the train. This brings great advantages with regard to installation and maintenance as well as to the commercial exploitation of the lines. Thus, the research work will focus on the monitoring of the integrity of the train on board. It will be a system that will be in charge of managing different...
