TK Engineering Oy is designing a telematics-based diagnostic system that will be used in the City of Tampere’s new Smart Trams. The development work is being carried out in close co-operation with Transtech Oy, which belongs to the Škoda Group.
The purpose of the diagnostic system is to collect information about the trams distributed control systems using, for example, CAN technology and other data networks. In developing the system, its scalability in the future, both in the short and long term, is being taken into account as much as possible. The collected data will be used to improve the reliability of the trams and to create services to improve passenger comfort.
