Understanding what is happening in certain parts of a train, like in bogies, brakes, HVACs, doors, couplers etc. is the ticket to better availability, easier and faster maintenance, improved safety and many other good things. Today you have the possibility to track the health of a train, or the whole fleet of trains. You can send the data using a wireless network, to the depot or to people who can analyze the data and make valuable decisions on this data. Usually we talk about remote diagnostics or remote condition monitoring. With this kind of condition monitoring, a train operator or maintenance company can achieve substantial savings.
