Railway condition monitoring

Commercial Transportation Industries

The Railway transport industry has been extensively used for safer transportation of goods and people from one place to another. Metro or Railways in turn are said to be the lifeline of cities. The heavy rolling stock continuously moves on large rail networks and bridges across parts of the country.

Challenges Faced By Our Customers

With the increase in demand for rail transport, it is expected that axle load is going to be increased and trains will be running at faster speeds. Heavy loads on rail structures and ever-rising train speeds have in turn accelerated damage to wheels and tracks. Due to this flatness of the wheel and track imperfection is a major issue. Conventional railway condition monitoring with strain gauges, load and temperature sensors is expensive due to their complexity in cable routing. Customers need innovative railway measurement and track maintenance techniques.

Our State Of Art Solution To Customers

Our fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor solution is a state-of-the-art technology that detects the flat wheel, track imperfection, speed, direction and axle load measurement with the help of an array of sensors laid below the rail along the tracks.railway environment.

Customer Benefits

Fiber optic sensors have advantages over traditional methods as there is no need for electricity to operate the sensors and is a cost-effective solution. Robust mechanical housing is designed to measure temperature, strain and vibration in the railway environment.
