Sensing project on aging railway infrastructure

A project on monitoring the health of aging railway infrastructure was awarded the New Civil Engineer TechFest Rail Visionary award in London, UK. The award recognizes organizations developing pioneering ideas and designs to effect major changes in the global rail sector. The project, led by Professor Matt DeJong, is a collaboration between the Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure (CSIC), AECOM, Network Rail, and the Alan Turing Institute. The project has 3 objectives: to improve understanding of structural behavior and degradation of bridges under train loading; to develop and evaluate a suite of new and existing monitoring technologies to monitor Network Rail assets; and to improve data availability and interpretation to enable better decision-making as part of a broader Network Rail initiative to digitize their infrastructure.
