Remote condition monitoring of track assets has continued to develop and with more pressure to remove inspectors from live track to improve worker safety, expansion in their capabilities is paramount. Monash Institute of Railway of Technology has offered low cost Instrumented Revenue Vehicles (IRVs) to its industry partners for 20 years. These solutions have utilized live revenue vehicles to ensure accurate and actionable readings, and frequent data runs.
