Digital Rail with ASC’s Smart Sensor Systems
The modernization of the infrastructure and the railway vehicles is a basic requirement in order to optimize track capacities and handle the increasing volume of traffic.
The smart sensor system ASC AiSys® combine the complete measuring task in one single system and are based on a modular concept. This includes the integrated hardware components – like reliable and proven sensor elements for determining an acceleration and/or angular velocity, the housing which is adapted to the harsh environmental conditions as well as bidirectional, wireless or wired data communication with a large number of standardized interfaces.
Furthermore, the modular concept also includes the flexibly combinable software components and algorithms in order to be able to analyze and evaluate the preprocessed measurement data and feature vectors directly on the smart sensor.
Smart monitoring solutions that are working in real time not only identifying the actual conditions of railway vehicles and infrastructure. Using self-learning algorithms, predictive analyses are done to describe the progress of future material weaknesses. Thanks to the ASC’s smart sensors maintenance tasks can be scheduled and performed much more efficiently!
