In the current project, PJM has performed measurements at the turnouts in Vienna Liesing. The track next to the regional transport hub in the south of Vienna is heavily frequented since train run every 5-10 minutes. By using our measurement data, we determine the stress on the turnouts over a period of two years. Therefore, our team had installed the measurement technology in November 2020. The measurements are performed fully automated. The data will be transmitted to the PJM servers via mobile network. Parallel to this, data analysis will run over the next 24 months.
