Track Side Bogie Monitoring System (TBMS)

Track Side Bogie Monitoring Systems (TBMS) monitors & provides data about the health of bogies. The forces acting in the vertical & lateral directions of the wheel-rail contact zone will represent the true health status of the bogie. Bogies with poor health are identified and isolated from the fleet for immediate repair & rectification.

The system was developed along with IIT-Kanpur as a part of Technology Mission for Railway Safety
