The invited Panels were:

  1. Assoc Prof Dr Ir Zainal Fitri Zainal Abidin
  2. Mr. Kazuhito Kato
  3. Mr. Izwan Sabri
  4. Mr. Abdul Qaiyum

Over-Arching Principles

Overall point of discussion focusing on the transportation perspective that combine all related aspects. Covered aspect and focal discussion arise, followed the theme of conference which is condition monitoring into the era of IR 4.0 and current situation of Malaysia to adopt the new approaching of technology of IR 4.0 and relates with the noise and vibration by using IoT interrogation into transportation perspective.


Condition monitoring with embedded sensors to provide continuous and real-time data acquisition and analysis of a machine and transportation by placing permanent sensors is a practice in CM, and can be a good start for monitoring high value assets, especially using vibration analysis. Optimum sourcing of replacement parts can arranged and scheduled with minimum downtime. A range of new technologies that are fusing the physical, digital and biological worlds, impacting all disciplines, economies, and industries.

The challenges & technologies

Machine learning may not replace humans until it is able to make model-based inferences, just as humans do. Cyber-physical systems are physical and software components that are deeply interconnected, each of them operating at different spatial and temporal scales, exhibiting multiple and distinct behavioural modalities, and interacting with each other in a myriad of ways that change with the context.

The way forward

Smart materials, such as piezoelectrics, piezoceramics, shape memory alloys, fiber optics, electrostrictive materials, magnetostrictive materials etc. can be integrated in structural models to provide them with the smart behavior. The baseline levels at vibration monitored locations were below the 0.14 millimetres per second (mm/s) Root-Mean-Square velocity (RMS).Railway sleeper’s noise and vibration control in build-up area. Noise and vibration are generated by wheel and rail interaction, transmitted via the track and superstructures.


Panel members agreed to have a one thinking future of industry railway and human and vibration should be related and combined in such a way. With IoT and technology of IR 4.0, the development of condition monitoring should be enhance and benchmarking with the countries leader of this area.
