Optical monitoring of infrastructure and trains

Railway measurement

Fraunhofer IPM develops optical systems for measuring wire wear, contact wires, clearance profile, pole position and for recording the geometries of moving trains. High resolution scanners in combination with rapid image processing deliver measuring data, which are the basis for planning maintenance activities. The systems record measurement data at speeds of 100 kilometers per hour and more. Rapid, precisely and reliably. Fraunhofer IPM measuring systems for the monitoring of railway tracks are in operation all over the world.



Fraunhofer IPM is member of the Fraunhofer Traffic & Transport Alliance.

Qualified in TransQ
