RRUKA is pleased to present the results of four academic-led feasibility studies, which shared a £250,000 competition prize to apply Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) to the maintenance of rolling stock. These projects explored blue-sky ideas for maintenance, servicing and inspection, with a focus on key industry challenges such as: reducing maintenance time to improve capacity; reducing whole-life costs; and improving safety by enhancing the reliability of rolling stock inspections.
Join us at the Science Museum on 25 May to find out more about:
- the potential for using automated inspection techniques and additive manufacturing for wheelset repairs (University of Birmingham)
- how big data and artificial intelligence can be applied to non-destructive testing of wheelsets (Southampton Solent University)
- designs for an autonomous system to service fluids on passenger trains (Brunel University)
- the mechanical and software challenges of creating a fully autonomous cab-front cleaning robot (Cranfield University)
