Track Material Monitoring Device
Reducing environmental impact
using trains in commercial operation
for track material monitoring
The device can be equipped to the underfloor space of trains in commercial operation. This eliminates the need for special inspection cars equipped with monitoring devices, thus reducing energy usage. It also reduces nighttime vibration and noise as it eliminates the need to operate special inspection cars at night.
A device equipped to the underfloor space of trains in commercial operation to obtain the image data of track materials (rails, rail fasteners and fish bolts) using laser beams, while traveling at up to 130 km/h in order to check for missing or loose bolts.
