The world’s first intelligent thermal sensor for rail transport safety
ThermiCam Rail is an integrated thermal camera and detector for obstacle detection in a public transportation environment. ThermiCam Rail does not need light to operate, but uses the thermal energy emitted from obstacles. This enables the sensor to detect vehicles, people and large animals in the darkest of nights, over a long range and in the most difficult weather conditions. The result is reliable, 24/7 detection for a wide range of applications.
Platform, Tunnel and Track Safety
ThermiCam Rail is a cost-effective solution for the detection of people falling off a platform, people entering a tunnel and people or large animals that enter the rail tracks. Contact closures and TCP/IP messages are sent upon detection of a person in a user-configurable detection zone to an operator for immediate action.
ThermiCam Rail uses thermal imaging to detect people in between the different movements of trains and trams going through the detection field of view. Next to suppressing train movement, ThermiCam Rail can also ignore small animals from its detection.
Level Crossing Obstacle Detection
ThermiCam Rail can be used to prevent collisions by detecting vehicles that are stuck on the level crossing and blocking the passage of an approaching train. The intelligent ThermiCam Rail sensor will transmit its detection information over contact closures or over a TCP/IP network to a control & operations room where the detection event and live thermal video is shown.
