IRT Railenium CEO Bertrand Minari said: “We need to identify and better understand the laws of wear and tear of wagons and their main components, relying in particular on our expertise in energy management as well as in data mining and artificial intelligence.”

Inveho Managing Director Julien Mathiot said the project “will lead us to better prepare our workshops in drawing up their workload plans; it will also lead to an increase in the proportion of mobile maintenance operations.”
