Early detection of obstacles on the tracks
HAZARD SITUATIONS ON THE TRACKS
One of the main risks linked to the railway operation
are the obstructions on the tracks caused by obstacles.
Depending on their nature, location and speed of the
trains, the hazard level may vary enormously.
Apart from the level crossings, there are other points
that are especially susceptible to present these kind
of problems: sections in which there is a high probability
of finding a dangerous obstacle.
Because of the high speed and inertia of the trains,
when the train driver gets to see the obstacle it is
too late to avoid the impact.
This makes it necessary to supervise the areas in
which those problems are more likely to occur,
especially those with a greater speed of the railway traffic.
Detection of obstacles on the tracks caused by
vehicles, objects, water or any living being..
The Begirail system analyses the streaming from the
video cameras that supervise the relevant rail track,
generating an alarms when it identifies a situation that
may pose a hazard for the railway traffic.
It is especially useful in:
- Tunnel entrances and exits.
- Trenches and slopes
- Flood areas
