  • Publication number: 20190081303
    Abstract: A sensor system senses one or more characteristics of vehicles in a vehicle system with sensors disposed onboard the vehicles and communicate data representative of the one or more characteristics from the sensors to one or more of a controller or a control system of the vehicle system. The data communicated from the sensors onboard the same vehicle can be synchronously communicated with respect to the sensors onboard the same vehicle and asynchronously communicated with respect to the sensors disposed onboard one or more other vehicles in the vehicle system. The systems and methods can direct components disposed onboard a vehicle system to change operations, monitor data output by sensors operatively connected with the components, and determine which of the sensors are operatively connected with which of the components based on the operations of the components that are changed and the data that is output by the sensors.

  • Publication number: 20190001996
    Abstract: A motor suspension assembly includes a frame bracket configured to be coupled with a vehicle frame having mounting locations for upper and lower suspension bars that are positioned for a direct current (DC) traction motor to rest upon the upper suspension bar and for elastic pads to be disposed between the upper and lower suspension bars. The frame bracket is configured to be coupled with the vehicle frame in place of at least one of the upper suspension bar or the lower suspension bar. The assembly also includes a dog bone suspension link configured to be coupled with a nose bracket of an alternating current (AC) traction motor and the frame bracket. The dog bone suspension link is configured to absorb vibration by at least partially rotating about one or more of the nose bracket or the frame bracket during operation of the AC traction motor.

  • Patent number: 9925991
    Abstract: An apparatus for lifting and moving an axle of a rail vehicle includes a frame, a pair of rollers rotatably mounted to the frame to movably support the frame on a railroad track rail, and a pair of wedges mounted to the frame having mutually opposed ramped faces. The pair of wedges adjustable along the frame between a first position in which the ramped faces bracket, but do not contact, a rail vehicle wheel that rests on the track rail, and a second position in which the ramped faces engage the circumference of the wheel to support the wheel at a height above the railroad track rail. The apparatus further includes at least one jacking device for urging the wedges toward one another from the first position to the second position.

  • Patent number: 9845084
    Abstract: A system includes a sensor and a controller. The sensor is configured to detect sliding of a wheel of a vehicle. The controller is configured to communicate with the sensor and a traction motor operatively connected to the wheel such that the traction motor selectively applies forces in at least one direction to the wheel during operation. The controller is further configured to direct the traction motor to apply a motoring slide reducing force to the wheel when the sensor detects sliding of the wheel resulting from a frictional braking force.
