In this online seminar various solutions based on different technologies for track / train inspection and identification will be described and discussed.

There are three focus topics:
  1. Three-dimensional inspection of passing trains for finding any protruding load or train components which could cause serious damage to infrastructure and/or life.
  2. Three-dimensional inspection by high-speed 3D camera:
    - for partly automated visual inspection of trains while passing by in normal operational speed (wayside mounted) or
    - ​for automated visual inspection of track components and/or contact and catenary wires (train mounted).
  3. Identification of train wagons or cars and locomotives when passing by with their operational (high) speed but also identification of goods during / before / after maintenanceOther technologies and applications of sensors in railway will not be presented but participants can feel free to bring up such topics during the discussions.
The online seminar will be structured in
  • a first presentation about inspections
  • followed by a brief open discussion,
  • a second presentation about identification and last not least
  • a discussion about this topic.

Three sensor experts will do the presentations. SICK’s strategic industry manager for “Traffic” will moderate the seminar. The time for discussion should be at least 30% of the seminar and participants are invited explicitly to ask questions.

Meet our colleagues of SICK at the online seminar!

Target groups
  • Engineering companies
  • consultants
or others who are in charge of designing, maintaining or operating railway infrastructure as well as vehicle owners, railway undertakings, etc. who are in charge of maintenance and operations of rolling stock.

Seminar goal is to give the participants
  • insight into SICK’s solutions for the mentioned topics,
  • a first impression about the use and integration of such solutions,
  • a first idea about best practice and lessons learned from installations,
  • the ability to judge roughly whether and how solutions for inspection and/or identification presented could be beneficial for them.
