The GoSAFE RAIL project is transformative for asset safety in the rail sector.

The project aligns directly with the Shift2Rail (S2R) masterplan and the three technology demonstrator projects in the Intelligent Asset Maintenance pillar (TD 3.6, 3.7 and 3.8). In particular it addresses:

  1. Integration of Open-Linked Data from a range of sources and transformation to allow for direct use in a safety framework incorporating network modelling,
  2. Real-time methods for object detection will be developed and demonstrated,
  3. Analytical models incorporating Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms will be developed to predict asset degradation and
  4. The safety framework can be used to plan maintenance and intervention strategies with the lowest whole life cycle cost.

Through the development of a Network Decision Support Tool the project provides integrated solutions to issues related to infrastructure safety and planning considering a number of common problems faced by EU infrastructure managers.
