Track Inspection, USA

Rail Vision has been working in North America since 2009 on introducing automated track inspection technologies for the North American market. Since 2009, Rail Vision has installed over six track inspection systems for inspection vehicles using the latest in linescan imagery and LED lighting for all time operation. Track imaging systems focus on the detection of railhead defects, tie grading and recognition of missing fasteners. Rail Vision has developed an extensive software framework for desktop based evaluation of tie grading results which integrates linescan and laser based findings using location and time of capture information. A detailed set of summary, full, and bingo reports are available with defect image exports to assist maintenance in planning intervention. Wood and concrete tie inspection is available at vehicle speeds of up to 65kph.
