RECOGNITION AND INSPECTION OF RAILWAY INFRASTRUCTURE USING LIDAR TECHNOLOGIES
The Centre for Sensors, Instruments and Systems Development (CD6 UPC) is working on developing a new system for recognition and inspection of railway electrical infrastructure, based on Laser Imaging Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) technology. This new system will contribute to ensuring the quality, continuity and safety of services, particularly high speed services, as these have high requirements of the electrical distribution network.
The project is being developed by a consortium led by the Company TELICE, CD6 UPC and the Robotics Group from the University of León, and is part of Challenge R4 (Sustainable, Smart, Integrated Transport) of the Spanish State Plan for Scientific and Technical Research and Innovation, 2013-2016. It has received funding from the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, through the programme Collaboration CHALLENGES.
