Abstract

This study aimed to replace the current discontinuous rail monitoring system by applying “Plug and Play” technology to rail system monitoring to enable real-time monitoring, and by confirming on-condition maintenance efficiency and reliability. It examined a wireless sensor monitoring system which uses SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave) technology to monitor temperature changes in the axle box bearing of railroad vehicles during operation. The results of the experiment were compared with HDB measurements to confirm the reliability of the real-time monitoring results measured on vehicles during operation.
