The aim is to improve the performance of the railway infrastructure by developing new methodologies/materials/solutions to achieve ruggedness, durability and greater wear and tear resistance as well as better sound proofing and cutting down maintenance costs.
Key actions of the project:
- To develop remote monitoring solutions for rail assets, including software apps for mobile devices;
- To develop support systems to assist in decision-making relating to renewal and maintenance based on degradation models;
- To develop new structural solutions by resorting to new materials with a view to cut life cycle born costs costs;
- To carry out an integrated review of investments in transport infrastructure
