The main aim of the RECET4RAIL research project is to introduce new emerging and disruptive technologies in the railway sector, in order to improve the rail system performance from all points of view, while reducing the overall life-cycle exploitation cost.
This is achieved by means of four workstreams:
- 3D additive manufacturing and new manufacturing technologies
- Wireless Dynamic Charging for urban vehicles based on SiC semi-conductors
- Investigations on reliability of traction components and lifetime mechanisms
- Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI) applied to Traction systems smart and predictive maintenance
