Reliable infrastructure with predictive maintenance
PANTOhealth plans to reduce maintenance costs of train infrastructure and improve the punctuality of trains through predictive maintenance technology.
The PANTOhealth technology uses a combination of a hardware and a software package.
The PANTOhealth hardware is installed on the pantograph and sends data to the server, which is read by the software using AI technology, to generate the report on the condition of the pantograph and the overhead line.
Therefore, both train operators and infrastructure managers will reduce maintenance costs by using these services. Real-time notification will help train operators and infrastructure managers to find malfunctions and failures to avoid delays.
