4Cranfield Rail GroupTechnicalSafety and behaviourBusiness
5Rail group - Technical Heat dissipation from brake discs Diagnostics, prognostics and maintenance planning for electro-mechanical systemsAir quality monitoring using optical fibre sensorsComplex Systems for optimizing rail networksDiagnosis, condition monitoring and prognosis for machines; motors, gears, generators;Rail monitoring with optical fibre grating sensors
6Tramway deployment of FBG sensors Instrumented fishplate
7Rail Group Safety and behaviour Passenger Safety Research: perceptions of risk and safety on the railway networkPassenger safety in rail crashesPassenger information requirements in safety related situations on the railway networkDriving Research Group: working with the private and public sector on driver behaviour.Human factors in rail and road safety.
8Rail Group - BusinessTransaction costs within rail firms; franchised train operating firms in Britain; benchmarking of train operating firms; deregulation and globalisation;Competition between air transport and high-speed rail in JapanEnvironmental impacts

14Data rich problems Location: Fixed beacon (balise) Moving sensors UltrasonicLaserTerabytes per day
15Data poor problems Old structures Difficult, infrequent inspections Very old records
16ChallengesRequirements for interchange of maintenance data between fixed and mobile actorsAutomation of monitoring on mobile platforms, and interface with other actorsNew cost modelling tools for complex distributed health monitoring, and value to the business.
