Technologies of interest emerge that, with initial review then warrant a more in-depth research.

An initial engineering review was conducted of the Marvin system, which has been developed by CPE Systems in New Zealand to highlight areas of potential rail stress, and which has undergone selected trails with KiwiRail.

Following on from a completed literature review, this project will include a  proof-of-concept test of the Marvin system including field validation and assessment of scientific instrumentation, operating principles and report on the current state of development of the product.
