For the availability of the railway network, disruption with a technical origin must be minimized. In order to achieve this, preventive or condition monitoring is essential. In this domain, life cycle models of railway assets and components are developed and research is performed into their key performance indicators. Besides, there is attention for development of non-destructive and wherever possible onboard monitoring and detection techniques.
