Abstract: This article describes the actual problem for railway transport, maximum thrust without boxing. The classification for dynamic modes operation of the locomotive drive is presented. An example of a system built for locomotive is presented. It is possible to use an encoder and vibration sensor inside a smart axle-box. These sensors based on a specially domestic designed ASIC. It is shown that vibration sensors could be positioned on the cover of an axle-box. Considering this fact, one could develop a system for predicting “before boxing” state of a wheel pair. That system could be based on domestically produced electronic components. This article is about developing a smart device for railway transport, in particular, for traction vehicle. The operating principle is based on express analysis of dynamic processes in the contact of the wheel with the rail, the characteristics of which are determined by the angular accelerations of the wheel pair and forward accelerations of the axle box, i.e. the bearing housing, which is rotating in the wheelset axle.
