Sensor technology for Railway

Information about this subject area

A prerequisite for reliable rail traffic for goods and passengers is a permanently intact rail network for the trains. Monitoring rails and switches with the help of sensor systems from iNDTact allows permanent monitoring of the rail condition and provides early warning of critical changes.

Possible applications could be:

  • Detection of approaching trains
  • Measuring the sinkage of the turnout/rail
  • Monitoring the behaviour of the turnout drive
