14 June, 2017: 8power presenting on real-time asset intelligence at Smart Rail

Dr Antony Rix, CEO of 8power, will present on 14th June at the 4th Conference on Asset Information and Data Management in Smart Rail in London.

His talk will describe:

  • New low-power wide area network (LPWAN) and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are maturing and can transform the way we monitor assets
  • State of the art and new enablers including MEMS sensing and energy harvesting
  • Case studies will include structural health monitoring, real-time power consumption and vibration monitoring
  • Options for how to trial and implement the technology

The talk is followed by a panel discussion with Dr Matthew DeJong from the University of Cambridge, where they will discuss the use of smart technology in rail, covering:

  • What applications are possible
  • How to go about trials
  • What’s required to integrate and adopt the technology at scale
  • How do you use the technology for proactive maintenance
  • Does it actually work
  • Could you pour less concrete | use the tech to prioritise maintenance | detect vehicle impacts | identify wheel flats | monitor embankment movement
