On-Board Diagnostics (OBD)

On-Board Diagnostics Systems provide complete access to the location of the locomotive and health information of various components on-board the locomotive. These systems enable real time monitoring of various parameters like vibration, temperature, pressure, voltage, current, etc for vital locomotive equipments like rotating machines, traction motor suspension bearings, axle bearings, air compressor, etc and could be used on both Electric and Diesel Locomotives.

 The system was developed along with IIT-Kanpur as a part of Technology Mission for Railway Safety
