Installing a measurement system on a passenger train removes the need for a whole host of additional running costs. By investing in a bespoke design to fit a passenger train, not only do you remove the need for a specialist vehicle but also the operator, train path and stabling costs.
We have the in-house capability to work with the customer to design not only the mechanical mounting but also the train interface, to truly make the measurement system part of the train.
The inertial bogie-mounted track geometry system measures the path of the vehicle bogie in space and the optical unit references these measurements to the rail head. This is achieved by projecting a sheet of laser light on a cross section of the rail, and capturing the image with a high definition camera, the output of which is used to produce the Y and Z coordinates of the rail.
