On-board Low Cost Derailment Warning System

Research Overview:

Every vehicle monitoring starts to address the question of vehicle related causes.

The existing locomotive mounted system are commonly considered as a track measurement/warning device.

The application of locomotive mounted system requires significant management and engineering efforts to identify a derailment risk of an individual rail vehicle.

With the latest instrumentation available on the market – there is an opportunity to develop a more convincing and reliable low cost prototype than in previous works conducted in this area for heavy haul railway applications.
