Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Condition monitoring and intelligent maintenance systems are crucial to reducing railway downtime and increasing network availability, thus enabling new passenger services and reducing operational costs.

In this Special Issue, we invite submissions exploring cutting-edge research and recent advances in the fields of non-destructive testing, condition-based maintenance, prognosis & health management, robotics applications, autonomous maintenance systems, track geometry data analyses, and data and visual analytics.

Modelling and experimental studies are welcome, as are comprehensive review and survey papers.

Dr. Isidro S. Durazo-Cardenas
Guest Editor
