Non-Intrusive Railway Track Monitoring

MoniRail provides a solution for monitoring the condition and degradation of railway track from on-board ordinary railway vehicles operating in service.

Keep track of the state of railway infrastructure whilst railway services continue uninterrupted.

MoniRail is a new spin-out company from the Birmingham Centre for Rail Research & Education (BCRRE). Its initial focus is on commercialising an in-service train data analytics platform coupled with an inertial measurement unit (IMU) that enables continuous monitoring of track and train.

The IMU can be used to collect data to monitor track geometry, ride comfort, and train condition and performance. The data analytics software platform converts data from the IMU into actionable condition information that predicts failures and allows for preventive maintenance by having a better understanding of the evolving condition of the assets.

Watch this space for further developments as MoniRail begins to evolve.
