Predictive maintenance platform Stratio is working with Go-Ahead Ireland (GAI) to deliver a predictive maintenance offer that will help prevent breakdowns.
The platform is being extended to GAI’s entire fleet after a successful proof of concept trial in 2021, which showed the technology could reduce GAI’s vehicle breakdowns by over 57% in the next three years.
Stratio uses artificial intelligence to collect indicators of vehicle condition, which can then be used to predict breakdowns. It means the wear rate of components can be plotted dynamically, instead of GAI relying on approximate mileage-based estimates.
The platform integrates predictive maintenance and remote diagnostics with GAI’s existing fleet management system by automating faults raised, allowing GAI to see vehicle faults before the driver sees a dashboard warning. This will take the company further to what Stratio describes as “a fully predictive maintenance regime”.
“Stratio’s technology gives our engineers the upper hand,” says Chris Stringer, Engineering Director at GAI. “The large-scale data processing offers actionable, real-time intelligence that prevents vehicle failure and passengers being impacted. We are excited to implement Stratio across our entire fleet.
“The platform’s capabilities fit into our zero-breakdown strategy to further improve our customer experience, and supporting our desire to move from preventive to predictive maintenance on the National Transport Authorities assets.”
Adds Ricardo Margalho, CEO and co-founder of Stratio: “By implementing a predictive maintenance model, GAI is embracing the future of transportation. Its commitment to delivering the safest, most reliable service to passengers is reflected by its pragmatic approach to innovation. They are determined to stay ahead of the curve, and we are delighted to be supporting them in achieving their operational goals.”
