High level objectives

  • The Smart maintenance aspect of the project is concerned with the use of information and modelled relationships to better target maintenance where it is needed, based on condition to reduce life cycle costs and generate other benefits including improved vehicle availability and performance or reliability. 
  • The human factors research is concerned with understanding the behaviour of users and in particular the factors that deter users from accessing rail, viewing the passenger experience as an end-to-end journey where rail will be only be one part. The aim is then to make recommendations on how to decrease the cognitive effort for individuals using rail services, through planning, booking tickets, integrating it with access to the station and onward mobility at the destination in different journey contexts.


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No: 777627
