Automated Train Condition Inspections

Assess train condition automatically utilizing sensor technology to mitigate manual inspection

  • Automated proactive condition monitoringThe automated, proactive monitoring of rolling stock condition from wayside mounted non-contact measurement and inspection technologies provides data feeds that can be processed to effectively assess rolling stock condition from component level to full train inspection.
  • Automation enabling condition based maintenanceAs operators move from slow and error-prone manual monitoring of critical components to automated measurements they experience significant maintenance cost savings and enable a path to condition based maintenance practices.
  • Fully automated train inspection systemsBy leveraging the latest in multiple sensor technologies, enhanced data processing algorithms and data modelling, Trimble is working toward fully automated train inspection systems which will dramatically mitigate the need for any manual inspection. These solutions will improve maintenance practices of all rail operators in significant ways.
