This 2D character-based animation aims to explain in a fun, engaging and playful way, a technology developed by Transmission Dynamics.
This system consists of an acquisition and Data Processing Module installed on the live pantograph frame, which continuously monitors the acceleration at the pantograph head and detects when transient signals exceed user- defined limits. Upon detection, the event is recorded at 330 Hz and the module communicates information wirelessly to a carriage mounted receiver module. Together with a time trace of such critical events, the precise GPS stamp provides time, date and location of their occurrence which is securely logged. The receiver can automatically alert designated personnel of severe impact events via TMS or GSM network, and can output signals to other on board systems (for driver notification if required). Thresholds for alarm levels can be programmed by the user.
