Technology trends driving track maintenance
Date: 21 November 2018
The railway, originally the driver of industrialization in the 19th century, is once again facing significant challenges: satisfying increasing mobility needs and at the same time reducing CO2 emissions, compensating for the loss of technical know-how, and meeting stakeholder demands for transparency.
The new technologies of digitalization make it possible to meet these challenges, even in the field of track maintenance machinery.
The main focus for new developments within PlasserSmartMaintenance are environmentally friendly drives, networked machines and autonomous systems.
The machine operates as part of a fleet for integrated track management.
