The place and performance of wireless sensor networks are rapidly improving in the
automotive industry, industrial and environmental monitoring. Uptake of this technology can be used
in urban rail vehicle management system. Due to the difficult and time-consuming maintenance of
vehicle management, a remote automatic monitoring system is needed. In this paper, it is proposed to
design, develop and implement a remote automatic vehicle monitoring system. The complete system
architecture includes a group of sensor nodes, some sink nodes, and a data centre. The sensor nodes
are connected to the sink node, which is connected to a data centre through CDMA or General Packet
Radio Service (GPRS) technologies. In order to improve the reliability of wireless transmission,
retransmission and redundant path are discussed. The system has been tested for half a year and
satisfactory results have been observed, which indicate that this system is useful for urban rail vehicle
