Perpetuum is a Hitachi solution, delivering solutions that utilise pioneering digital technology to optimise railway operations, offering improved efficiency, safety and quality of service.
The Perpetuum solution utilises wireless condition monitoring to spot faults, allowing them to be fixed before they delay passengers’ journeys. Once they are installed on trains, Perpetuum’s self-powering digital sensors detect on-board vibrations and send back real-time data about the performance of critical train parts – e.g. wheel sets, gearboxes, motors or bogies – as well as the track faster and more accurately than traditional condition-monitoring approaches.
