FASTRACK is a project in the railway sector which main objective is the design of a new track system board suitable for use in high-speed railway lines (above 250 km / h), and both economically and environmentally sustainable . Softcrits is responsible for the activity that develops an integrated system monitoring and maintenance for the new track system.
The monitoring system is based on wireless sensor networks and is able to monitorvibration and inclination of the plates to report real-time structural health of these.
The information collected by the sensors is sent to the train, in turn, sends it to thecentralized system. In addition, the system analyzes the installation phase in the correct arrangement of the plates.
Finally note that the project also involves the deployment of a wireless sensor network for monitoring transition zones of the railway line.
