Program 3 – Design, Modelling and Simulation

The objective of the Design, Modelling and Simulation research program is to deliver safety and efficiency in advanced rail manufacturing as a means to enhance the competitiveness of the industry. This will be achieved through research and commercialization in the following fields – Advanced Design and Simulation, Automated Health Monitoring, Advanced Data Analysis and Information Systems, Advanced Operations Management Systems, and Energy Use Management Tools.

The list of current projects now underway includes:

  • R3.1.2 – Integrated passenger behaviour, train operations diagnostics and vehicle condition monitoring system (see video below)
    Downer / University of Technology Sydney
  • R3.1.3 – Predictive maintenance models for Sydney Trains
    Sydney Trains / University of Technology Sydney
  • R3.1.4 – Intelligent data fusion and analytics framework
    Downer / Deakin University
  • R3.2.2 – Development of a responsive passenger information system for the Sydney Trains network (stage 2)
