Demand for Wayside Train Monitoring Systems in the Network of Slovenian Railways

The Ministry of Transport, Railways and Cableways Directorate, Sector for Investment and Upgrading engaged the Vienna University of Technology, Institute of Transportation, Research Centre for Railway Engineering to carry out two studies on the demand of wayside train monitoring systems in the network of Slovenian Railways (SZ). One is covering the requirements for weighting systems and flat wheel detection (so called axle load checkpoints) and the other one for hot box detection systems. This article contains the results for both studies. It deals with the demand analysis based upon the accident data base of Slovenian Railways (SZ) under consideration of the defined protection goal. The technical requirements for the sensor systems are also listed. The choice of location is done by an analysis of risky elements in the network of Slovenian Railways (SZ). Finally it gives an outlook on recommendations for the practical implementation.
