RESILTRACK - Resilience of railway infrastructures against Climate Change
Type of activity
Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico Industrial (CDTI)
Funding entity code
The main objective of Resiltrack is to design a system to monitor in real time the state of the railway infrastructure, and to provide the mechanisms to anticipate adverse weather phenomena and determine the actions to mitigate their effects, creating a new generation of resilient railway infrastructures prepared for the potential effects associated with climate change. This is one of the EU's priorities, and also crucial for the rest of the world. This system will be built thanks to latest ICT technologies such as IoT (WSN, advanced sensoring), GIS, Decision Support Systems (for a Smart Maintenance), BIM, Big Data, Predictive/Preventive Maintenance, Life Cycle Thinking, among many others.
