The JSC (Joint-Stock Company) "Railway Products Conformity Assessment Center", under a contract with JSC "Lithuanian Railways", carried out a rolling stock geometry and rolling surface defect risk assessment study which analyzed the principles and algorithm of the ATLAS-LG system used by JSC "Lithuanian Railways" and the system's advantages and similarities with other systems used for rolling surface defect prediction worldwide. According to the results of this study, JSC "Voestalpine VAE

The goal of this work was to review the automatic systems of rolling stock used to evaluate the state of the rolling stock, compare the criteria for culling, describe the methodology for setting a new parameter for detecting wheel damage Pderivative instead of the previous parameter Kdm, and upgrade operational algorithms of ATLAS. This paper describes the algorithm and methodology for setting a new parameter, evaluating the construction of rolling stock and movement speed. To develop a replacement algorithm for the ATLAS-LG system, a new parameter verification methodology using the inverse Laplace transform for the mathematical model was used.
