Smart solar rail track fault detection system
Inspection of railway tracks is done manually, which is an exhaustive and expensive in terms of time and effort. New system can help in the inspection of railway tracks automatically with minimal human intervention. The core requirement is to eliminate the use of multiple sensors to detect the faults in the tracks by introducing a compact e- vehicle which can run on the railway tracks with fewer sensors and video camera to detect the faults, and GPS system predicts the exact location of the fault and alert the maintenance team. The device also records the data for future use.
