Digital solution for predictive maintenance in trains

Digital solution for predictive maintenance in trains
With predictive maintenance, train maintenance cycles can be optimised based on usage and problems can be identified before they occur. This minimises downtimes, reduces operating costs and increases operational safety in rail traffic. ELTEC Elektronik, Splunk and ESE Engineering with DRIVE 1.0 have offered a solution for the efficient, fast and safe acquisition and communication of train operating data and their transmission to higher-level systems.
