In wet conditions, the traction of rail tracks can be reduced by up to 50%.

When a train runs over light snow conditions it compresses the snow into a thin ice lawyer  which can reduce the traction by up to 85 %.

This reduction in traction takes an extensive monetary toll on the train transport industry, especially the freight services.

RDTS technologies is working on providing a cutting edge technology to improve the traction on rail tracks in wet and light snow conditions.
