To enable one to control rail traffic safely, punctually and efficiently, SBB has installed over 200 wayside train monitoring systems throughout its rail network. The various fully automated measuring and sensor systems perform all manner of monitoring functions 24/7. They detect technical defects before they can cause an incident on the track network, such as load displacement, overloading, clearance profile breaches or the escape of dangerous goods as well as hot box or damaged axle box bearings.

The risk of disruption is minimised by monitoring the trains and the high-risk areas of the track network.

  • Increased safety thanks to the early detection of risks
  • Maintains route availability through the early detection of appropriate measures
  • Complete overview of several installation types

The webinar shows how SBB is investing in innovative, forward-looking railway technology products and services to meet even the toughest WTMS requirements.
