Tunnel & Clearance

Tunnel & Clearance

Clearance gauge measurement of railway lines is a decisive operation to ensure traffic safety. Huge damage may be caused even by small objects entering the allowed clearance area.

High performance Clearance Gauge and Tunnel Walls Inspection System combining "state-of-the-art" optoelectronics and machine vision technology for automatic surveying and real-time assessment of tunnels and infrastructure clearance. A mandatory in-depth inspection and analysis: tunnels and clearance profiles on railways, capturing image data of bridges, underpasses, poles, walls, tree branches, and other obstacles is the only way to ensure the safe transport of rail passengers and cargo.

T-Sight 5000

The T-Sight 5000 uses High performances fixed cameras mounted in front of anamorphic mirrors custom-designed by MERMEC. These mirrors in combination with laser light reflected from the walls of the tunnel, allow a line profile from the complete 360° circumference of the FOV to be captured by the cameras at a maximum speed of 1000 gauge profiles per second. The detected gauge is compared with admitted profile and alarm reports with anomalies are computed automatically. Additionally, the system can host linescan cameras in order to get a complete 360° circumference image of the tunnel and surroundings. This images are processed by high performances PC and are used for tunnel wall inspection.

T-Sight 200

The system, using a rotating laser mirror, scans a 360° radius of the transversal profile of the railway line, so that violations with respect to the admitted profile are detected and alarm reports with the anomalies are sent to the maintenance staff.
Moreover, the T-Sight 200, thanks to its modular design, can be easily integrated with the Video Surveillance System in order to provide the users with digital acquisitions of the line, or parts of the same, where the line parameters exceed the control thresholds.
