TrackVue is an integrated measurement system which uses an array of cameras and laser equipment for non-contact track measurements. TrackVue camera configurations can be optimised for track imaging including depth measurements with lasers, forward facing (right of way) imaging, rail-wheel contact imaging, and third rail imaging. In addition, geometry and rail profile measurements can be made with additional equipment.
A conceptual design of the system used for track imaging (cameras and lighting array) is shown below.
TrackVue is designed to be easily adapted for tracks of different gauge sizes, and to fit on a range of vehicles including Hi Rail vehicles and inspection trains. The following specification of the system describes its components and functionality.
TrackVue system can be easily mounted with infrastructure monitoring vehicles including hi-rail vehicles - (example videos of track operation with a hi-rail vehicle are shown below).
