This paper presents the background study, the development and the tests of a monitoring system for intermodal freight wagon. The prototype of the on-board unit, developed by the research group of Railway Engineering of Politecnico di Torino, was installed and tested on an intermodal freight wagon owned by the company Ambrogio Trasporti S.p.a. as part of the project ITS Cluster Italy 2020. Significant advances have been made in the field of freight train monitoring. In recent years, many companies have presented specific devices with the aim of monitoring the operating conditions of goods wagons. The developed prototype was tested on real track. The main vehicle parameters monitored during the tests were the temperature of brake blocks, the operating pressures of the brake system, and the vehicle accelerations. The measurements allowed the team to verify the effectiveness and reliability of the monitoring system in harsh conditions. The significant amount of measured data were then used to validate a first energetic model useful for subsequently developing monitoring and diagnostic algorithms.
