THE POWER OF INTEGRATION
Rail and Track Geometry Inspections
Using lasers, inertial technology and complex algorithms, Nxtrack measures multiple parameters of both rail and track geometry. It also produces automatic curve reports. Autonomous versions are available for mounting on locomotives or other service vehicles, as well as specialized instruments for measuring switch and turnout parameters dynamically.
Automated Optical Track Inspections
Replacing manual and video based inspection, NxTrack uses advanced machine vision systems to recognize missing or damaged elements on the track bed and classify them in real time according to user parameters or industry-dictated requirements. In conjunction with our Geometry inspection system, this is the first product on the market able to examine detailed imagery for the reported geometric defects through a common front end. Measurements can be accurately obtained at line speed and through turnouts.
Ground Penetrating Radar
We’ve repurposed the latest military broadband step frequency antennas, originally developed to detect land mines in hostile areas, to inspect ballast quality and assist in generating accurate cleaning and renewal programs. Automated processing algorithms enable spot checking of specific infrastructure features such as culverts and transitions onto bridges or road crossings.
