On-board Low Cost Derailment Warning System
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.
