The Clover predictive analytics project for special rolling stock was among the winners of the Russian Railways acceleration program. 20 projects of 600+ applications from Russian and foreign companies reached the finals, and 7 most promising projects of them were selected by the jury for the pilot stage.
According to the program, Russian Railways and the accelerator winner should sign a roadmap for the testing, which will result in a decision on the further scaling of the railway network project and establishing long-term cooperation.
As part of the pilot project, the Clover SmartMaintenance solution will be tested at several units of the Russian Railways special rolling stock, after which the economic effect will be assessed. If the project succeeds, it will open up the prospects for covering all types and series of special rolling stock, participating in the creation of a unified ecosystem to manage the SRS life cycle and, jointly with RZD, implement the failure diagnostics and prediction concept.
SmartMaintenance is the top-of-the-line solution of the Clover Group, which has already been adapted for locomotive data. The company has created a team having the necessary skills and expertise, accumulated a lot of experience, implemented many projects including Smart Locomotive - the CIS major project. After winning the RZD accelerator, the Clover Group will allow to expand the usage domain of experience, expertise and solutions, and include not only locomotives, but also other complex railway equipment.
