We present a temperature monitoring and warning system, which is based on wireless communi- cation technology and applied in train switchgear in this paper. The system is consists of three parts, including wireless temperature detection module, inter-vehicle transmission networks module and remote monitoring server. The switchgear contact temperature data are collected via the wireless temperature detection module and exchanged in inter-vehicle wireless networking by Zigbee modules. Then the temperature of train switchgear cabinets can be monitored remotely through the GPRS wireless communication.
