Challenge Description

Objectives of this prospection

Identify technological solutions for monitoring conditions associated with key variables and parameters for the different components of railway systems (rails, wheels, trains, cars, pantographs, etc.), specifically, for online and real-time measurement of temperature, weight, profiles, thicknesses, wear, noise, vibration and others that allow replacing manual monitoring and supporting maintenance management.

Technological Solutions requirements

The proposed technological solution must consider the following conditions:

  • Generation and delivery of information during equipment operation, minimizing workshop inspections.
  • Software / Hardware solution integrated in technology.
  • Compatibility with existing data acquisition systems in Codelco DET.
  • Wireless technologies (desirable).
  • Low maintenance and low operating costs.
  • Training programs.
  • Minimum labour for its implementation, operation and maintenance.
  • Minimal operational interference.
  • Comply with Codelco DET security standards.
