RFID TRACKING SYSTEM
The goal is to leverage innovation and simplify the wheelset fleet management throughout the entire life cycle, offering real-time information on the state of wear, technical data, certificate of conformity, and turnaround time.
SMARTSET® Condition Based Maintenance tools powered by the Starcrack algorithms help to optimize freight inspection intervals without compromising freight safety. SMARTSET® sensors detect the stress levels of the axle, offering a real-time picture of the wheelset components’ safety and warning of the potential critical locations along the track.
