The INNOWAG project will work towards increasing rail freight competitiveness and the development of the next generation of lightweight and intelligent freight wagons, by addressing specific challenges in three essential areas, namely:

  • Cargo condition monitoring,
  • Wagon design, and
  • Predictive maintenance.

The aim of the proposed INNOWAG project is to develop intelligent cargo monitoring and predictive maintenance solutions integrated on a novel concept of lightweight wagon, which would respond to major challenges in rail freight competitiveness. The INNOWAG project therefore aims at developing a rail freight service that fits the needs of modern manufacturing and supply chain.
