Vision Systems for the Automated Inspection of Transportation InfrastructurePavemetrics specializes in 3D laser triangulation systems for the automated inspection of transportation infrastructure including roads, runways, railways and tunnels.
Our sensors offer 100 times the resolution, and 10 times the accuracy, of LiDAR and we have successfully delivered more than 400 systems to customers in more than 40 countries around the world.
Pavemetrics Laser Rail Inspection System (LRAIL) delivers an entirely new and more cost effective means to inspect railway assets.
Most rail inspection sensors in the marketplace today are limited to a single function; they measure a specific parameter such as gage, or perform a single task, such as imaging.
The LRAIL delivers greater ROI by combining high-resolution rail imaging with 3D scanning in a single pass and automating the inspection process. So not only can you see your railway in high-resolution, but you can inspect it too.
The LRAIL captures an impressive 1 mm resolution X and Y 3D profile with a vertical accuracy 0.1 mm of the rails, ties and ballast area at speeds up 60 km/h at 1mm intervals, 120 km/h at 2mm intervals and 180 km/h at 3mm intervals.
The LRAIL’s automated algorithms analyze 3D profiles to make key measurements such as rail geometry (cant, alignment, curvature, etc.) and to detect key defects (rail surface flaws and damaged ties).
