Scanning of a Track Renewal Train


  • MATISA Machine GmbH

Project Content

This project for the MATISA Machine GmbH (from Donaueschingen) was about so -called light pipe surveys of a track renewal train (P95). This kind of survey helps to safely prevent a train from colliding with objects (e.g. signs) close to the tracks in a certain area (light pipe). 

The app. 114 m-long train was completely scanned (Riegl laser scanner VZ-400) for this. During the data evaluation, sections were layed through defined areas, and the respective measures taken in CAD. These values were analyzed with a target-performance comparison concerning the deviations.
