CargoCBM is a research project with the aim to increase reliability and availability of freight wagons. The CargoCBM system is used for the condition monitoring of wagons in operation. The system is realized using real-time access to relevant sensor data of accident-sensitive components such as brakes and wheels. Those are put into a diagnostic software via remote access and support current maintenance scheduling, and ultimately the optimization of maintenance.
The development and the usage of innovative technology like CargoCBM reduce operating costs and contribute in raising efficiency in rail freight services.
CargoCBM is an integrative research project of several partners. The project started in January 2010 and is supported by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology.
