Railway systems play a vital role in modern transportation systems by quickly and safely conveying large amounts of cargo and passengers. Not only the increase in train load but also the changes in world climate compel railway infrastructure to undertake maintenance operations. The effects of climate change cause the deterioration of the rail infrastructure and may affect its performance when extreme events occur. Railway track monitoring will become more significant, as railway tracks and their components will have more sensitivity to train load and harsh environments. The outcomes of railway track monitoring are to identify possible damage, provide real-time conditions, improve safety and reliability, and help move from scheduled and preventive maintenance to a more rational predictive maintenance approach.
