Product description

The RPS (Railway Profiling System) measures and detects profile violations of trains under free-flow traffic conditions. The trains are scanned up to 200 times a second using eye-safe 2D LiDAR sensors. The measurement data recorded is used to generate a 3D model of each train. This 3D model is the basis for fully-automated detection of profile violations. In case of a violation the critical section of the train can be analyzed in the 3D model as well as with several pictures. In addition, the modular structure of the RPS allows simple upgrading of the system functions to include additional features such as truck antenna detection (rolling highway)
