The aim of INNOWAG is to develop intelligent cargo monitoring and predictive maintenance solutions integrated on a novel concept of lightweight wagon, which responds to major challenges in rail freight competitiveness, in relation to the increase of transport capacity, logistic capability and an improved RAMS and lower LCC.
The project determines how to effectively integrate innovative technologies for cargo condition monitoring into a novel high performance lightweight freight wagon, supported by effective health monitoring technologies, and predictive maintenance models for sustainable and attractive European rail freight. The development of novel technology concepts and predictive maintenance models and procedures are separately addressed by the INNOWAG work streams:
