Abstract

The paper discusses the prototype architecture and capabilities of a Locomotive Condition Monitoring System (LCMS) utilizing an open computing platform, public communications service and commercial software. Integration of locomotive originated data and existing data sets, along with proposed enhancements are also discussed. The treatise documents the use of computer technologies to aid and improve asset management in a railroad environment. Though deployed on a freight railroad, the LCMS application is readily transportable to a rail transit environment and can provide a "core" platform for the implementation of other applications requiring data from on-board a
