Swiss Research and Innovation: SAVVY® Telematic Systems and Wascosa successfully introduce flat spot detection with telematics

Press release July 13th, 2018

Flat spots on freight wagon wheel sets are problematic. Not only do they lead to increased noise emissions, they also cause the wheel sets to wear out more quickly. In many cases, the flat spots are detected only after many kilometres on the rails, resulting in increased defects and costs. With the support of the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN), the freight wagon leasing company Wascosa and SAVVY® Telematic Systems conducted a research project to analyse “flat spot detection” and developed a true innovation for rail freight transport.

The new development makes it possible to identify flat spots via acoustic irregularities and eliminate the flat spots efficiently. When the project was launched, Wascosa AG had already equipped several hundred intermodal wagons with telematic systems developed by SAVVY® Telematic Systems AG. This fleet of intelligent freight wagons constituted a solid foundation for the 1-year project’s proof of concept. With average kilometrage exceeding 100,000 km - even 200,000 km are not rare - intermodal wagons are some of the most intensely used freight wagons in the business. Correspondingly, flat spots will affect noise emissions.

SAVVY® provides a comprehensive overview of shipments, freight and containers – even for hazardous goods shipments

Press release Sept. 15th, 2015
The use of telematics is not unknown in container logistics. Its use and scope of application is limited however. This is due to lack of technological maturity, practicality and an unattractive cost/benefit ratio. A lot of systems are not modular or vendor-independent enough to create value beyond their actual application. Modern telematics and/or M2M technology do not have these limits. This technology can be connected to all types of carriers and containers as required, thereby creating comprehensive optimisation opportunities for container logistics.

"Rail freight transport digitalization 4.0"

Tecnical Paper July 6th, 2015
Demands on freight wagon operations and maintenance are many and high. For operators, and to some extent for shippers, monitoring transport progress, using intermodal systems, complying with safety and maintenance regulations, and ensuring wagons are reliable and available go hand in hand with high personnel costs. If control and implementation are insufficient, productivity may decrease, further aggravating cost pressures. The only recourse is to increase the economic efficiency of individual processes along the process chain. In view of sinking margins in rail transport and competition from the road, action is obviously required but, for the same reasons, the scope of that action is limited. Intelligent, multivendor and highly integrated telematic systems solve this dilemma.
