Automatic Inspection Of Railroad Track: A Design Approach
Abstract- Currently, most of railway track inspections are manually conducted by railroad track inspectors. Practically, it is
not possible to inspect the thousands of miles of railway track. Hence to avoid delays, our propose system will automatically
inspect the railway track by using vision based and vibration based method. This method proposes continuous monitoring
and assessment of the condition of the rail tracks which prevent major disasters. The system provides real-time monitoring
and structural condition for railway track using vision based method and calibration to search the fault location on the track.
Inspections include detecting defects on tracks, missing bolts, anchor, tie plate and clips etc.
