Gotcha provides infrastructure managers and train operators with cost-effective solutions for a wide range of real-time monitoring requirements. Among others:
Track usage (tonnage, axle loads, dynamic loads, vehicle identification)
Vehicle maintenance (vehicle identification, wheel condition, carbon strip integrity)
Asset protection (wheel defects, load distribution, pantograph uplift)
Environment (noise emission monitoring, vibration)
Feedback through dedicated user interfaces
In addition to these core capabilities, the Gotcha system's provision of secure, reliable, high capacity real time data analysis and storage capability with instant transmission to train control and maintenance centres throughout the network, gives a flexible and powerful base for rail system optimizations.
