CEIT leads the activities at the European level of “TD5.3 Smart freight wagon concepts” of Shift2Rail Freight Transport research line

Within the framework of the FR8RAIL III project (Smart data-based assets and efficient rail freight operation) CEIT has carried out a field test campaign of two of its systems in Sweden (Västerås). On the one hand, the performance of wireless communication systems based on LORA technology has been analyzed in a composition of 12 wagons in a static and dynamic environment, where, regardless of the wagon, a low rate of packet loss has been verified in both environments,

On the other hand, the brake monitoring system has been tested, which will enable the automation of the freight train preparation process, thereby reducing the time required and increasing safety.
