Successful Completion of the Project Metrics: Anomalies Detection and Failure Prediction in the Railway Sector

Together with Siemens Mobility Austria GmbH and Virtual Vehicle Research GmbH, ANDATA successfully completed the R&D project Metrics. The project aimed to use virtual sensors for the detection of anomalies and faults in the railway chassis as well as in the rails and thus to be able to predict the failure of components for predictive maintenance applications at an early stage on the basis of the existing acceleration sensors.

ANDATA succeeded in extending the already available data- and model-based approaches of the expert system, as implemented in the Expectator, to the field of railways and thus repeatedly confirming the universality and pragmatism of the existing, AI-based solutions.

We are pleased about the cooperation with the railway community in Graz and look forward to implementations and further developments in various follow-up projects and equivalent implementations.

If you are interested in further details, please consult or meet the project partners at the GRITLab in October 2021 in Graz.

Winner of the Race Across Germany 2021

ANDATA at the carhs conference "Virtual Testing – Scenario Based ADAS Validation"

Next week at July 1st, 2021 the carhs conference on Virtual Testing #2: Scenario-based ADAS Validation takes place.

ANDATA will contribute with the presentation of

Management, Evaluation & Analysis of Huge Scenario Bases

  • Requirements & pitfalls for large scale scenario simulations
  • Procedures for simulation data quality assessment
  • Analysis and interpretation of specific evaluations
  • Integration of scenario management into requirements management and continuous design improvement processes

Beside some insights from more than 16 years hands-on experience in scenario management some outlook and preliminary conclusions from the project COPE on the collision avoidance with vulnerable road users (VRUs) by vehicle and infrastructure connectivity can be expected.

Start of the project 5G MOBIS for the detection of traffic flows in Hallein and Salzburg

Today the common kickoff of the project 5G MOBIS took place! Based on an initiative of the federal state Salzburg and the Innovation Service Salzburg (ITG), the project is developing solutions for the anonymous, provider-side detection and precition of traffic flows using 5G technologies. The aim is to achieve such temporal and spatial accuracies that the resulting data can be used for novel approaches of adaptive traffic control, active traffic mangement, and for cooperative mobility, as well as for innovative and novel forms of traffic and spatial planning. This is ultimately intended to provide a further, fundamental building block for the continuous improvement and solution of the traffic problems in Salzburg, starting from the model region Hallein/Salzburg.

ANDATA is pleased to have won the trust for this innovative reference project in Salzburg together with Invenium and A1 under the lead of the iSPACE of Research Studios Austria!

Digitrans and ANDATA are Starting a Cooperation for the Development of New Solutions to Validate Automated Driving Functions

The managing directors of Digitrans (middle) and ANDATA with the signed cooperation agreement.

Digitrans is the neutral and manufacturer-independent test field for automated, connected driving in Austria with a focus on freight transport and logistics.

ANDATA has been involved in simulation and data-based development and validation of vehicle safety systems, automated driving functions and traffic automation for more than 16 years.

In any case, the development and validation of cooperative, connected, automated driving functions (CCAD) requires a neat combination of suitable simulation methods with data and measurements from real-world operation in corresponding test fields.

Digitrans and ANDATA are now starting a cooperation to combine the respective possibilities, competencies, infrastructures and products. In particular, certain, new and innovative solutions will be developed together to make the introduction of automated and driverless transport systems significantly safer, more effective and more efficient.
