Standard vehicles equipped with precise and reliable measuring systems in regular operation enable customers to localize problem areas in the infrastructure and on vehicles in real-time. The daily updated evaluation of the severity of problems supports proactive planning and influencing of maintenance measures.

Catenary

Correct contact between the pantograph and the catenary is essential for efficient train operation. This can be ensured by continuously monitoring forces and acceleration using optical sensors integrated into the pantograph design.
 

The fully autonomous system integrated in standard vehicles provides real-time insights into the quality of overhead lines and enables new approaches for predictive maintenance.
