SINGAPORE, Singapore's rail operator, SMRT Trains and McLaren Applied Technologies will work together on condition monitoring solutions that are able to track and predict the performance of MRT trains, Channel NewsAsia reported.

McLaren Applied Technologies is a UK-based technology company part of the McLaren Group, which includes McLaren Racing, the Formula One (F1) team, and McLaren Automotive, the carmaker.

Condition monitoring solutions are commonly used by F1 race cars to provide vital information derived from "highly specified data capture" in real-time to the F1 pit crews and mission control.

The two companies will work on solutions to monitor the train motors, brakes, pneumatic systems and gearboxes on a test-bed SMRT train, SMRT said in a statement.

A memorandum of understanding between the two companies was signed in Singapore on Feb 23.
