Over the past few years, the companies involved in TIS, as well as other market participants, have designed, developed, and tested many innovations which aim to significantly improve the technical and economic performance of freight wagons. Today, there is widespread agreement in the rail freight sector regarding the innovative freight wagons of the future.
The freight wagons of the future will incorporate the following features:
Innovative running gear, bogies, wheelsets, and braking systems. Lighter, quieter, lower wearing components will contribute to the economic viability and acceptance of modern freight wagons.
Telematics devices. Freight wagons will be equipped with sensors for the implementation of a wide range of use cases in the specific area of application, e.g. impact detection, weighing, temperature or pressure measurements in the tank.
Telematics data will be transmitted using standardised interfaces to ensure compatibility between all freight wagons equipped with telematics devices.
