The remote asset system contributes to cutting railway faults drastically
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced that it has introduced the remote asset conditioning monitoring system to capture data related to the condition of railway switches without human intervention.
RTS stated that by using a special algorithm, the system can predict potential faults of these vital switches before they develop, and accordingly enables taking proactive measures to avoid any issues that might disrupt the Dubai Metro service.
Mohammed Al Amiri, director of Maintenance, Rail Agency, said: “The implementation of the Remote Asset Condition Monitoring System is a landmark development in shifting from conventional management methods to a highly sophisticated predictive maintenance method, based on the anticipation of faults before they occur.”
He added that the system contributed to cutting faults drastically which reflected on the performance of the Dubai Metro network and in reducing the costs of service outage.
“The system will considerably reduce costs that would otherwise be spent on conventional maintenance of the metro. Accordingly, it will increase revenues and help achieve high-performance indicators in operation and maintenance. The system will also support RTA’s efforts to transform Dubai into the smartest and happiest metro in the world,” Al Amiri concluded.
