Innovations in 2019:

Hammer Project

Inse Rail, in collaboration with CDTI (Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico Industrial/Center for Industrial Technological Development) and the company TELICE, has developed the HAMMER project to provide an innovative technological solution able to facilitate and correct the needs identified in the vibration behavior study.

During this period, it has been developed an excitation system to induce vibrations in railway bridges in order to apply a series of techniques to analyze the dynamic behavior of railway bridges, overcoming many of the limitations and drawbacks of the methods that are currently available.

From a technical point of view, we have manufactured a first prototype of a system with the capability of improving the safety, functionality, and knowledge of the evolution over time (upkeep) of railway bridges, based on the application of experimental analysis technologies that are even better than the ones currently used in the railway industry.

PlusRail Project

Inse Rail has achieved the PLUSRAIL project in collaboration with CDTI (Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico Industrial/Center for Industrial Technological Development). Its goal is to develop advanced simulation tools for the design, analysis, and optimization of railway networks. The models that are generated will be used to analyze and optimize railway networks in terms of energy efficiency, as well as to reduce electromagnetic disturbances, harmonic emissions, and limitation of forward and contact voltages that are harmful for the railway environment.

Through the development of the PLUSRAIL project, Inse Rail is facilitating and improving the process to analyze and optimize technological alternatives and solutions to offer the best solutions to specific problems in the railway sector in shorter times, providing design teams with more efficient calculation tools.

SigRail Project

Inse Rail is developing the SIGRAIL project in collaboration with CDTI (Center for Industrial Technological Development), Inse Rail launched the SIGRAIL innovation project, an advanced calculation system for optimizing signalling and communications systems, as well as the operating plan of railway systems. The project will run until the end of 2019.

Some of the principal innovative challenges that the project incorporates include the development of a process calculation tool that combines mathematical and logical elements, the design of a structure with configurable parameters that makes it possible to cover the technological variety in the sector and provide versatility in terms of the type of railway network and applicable standards.

The SIGRAIL project will be operational in the first quarter of 2020.

Intelcat Project

In 2019, Inse Rail launched, in collaboration with the CDTI (Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology), the INTELCAT innovation project, an advanced calculation system for the optimization of signaling and communications systems, as well as the operation plan for a railway system.

The INTELCAT project presents numerous innovations within the sector, highlighting the homogenization of technical criteria among different engineers, thus eliminating the subjective component associated with the current design process (manual), as well as the design and development of segmentation, calculation and logic algorithms, fully parameterizable, for use in different types of railway infrastructure (metro, tram, suburban, etc.) and countries with different regulations.

The INTELCAT project is being developed by a Spanish-American consortium made up of INSE RAIL, Telice and RSE, and it is expected to be operational by the end of 2020.
