Product information

Overview

Inspect your Network with state-of-the-art, high resolution images delivered to your desktop within hours.

Our award-winning system combines high resolution cameras and pattern recognition software, offering a revolutionary advance in technology for inspecting, mapping and monitoring of difficult to access areas. Eight hours of data can be captured at speeds over 160km/h and processed within 48 hours.

Using OmniVision® creates a quality, digital record of infrastructure, building up an auditable and qualitative database. This means less manual inspections, less impact on services and more control of resources.

How it works

OmniVision has two integral parts, the image acquisition module and an off-line post-processing system.

The image acquisition system captures high resolution areascan, linescan and 3D profiling images and can operate at speeds of up to 200km/h. It is modular making it flexible both in terms of system configuration and installation.

The post-processing system uses software to identify the location of rail surface defects (regular, irregular and compound) and assets. Business priority can also be implemented to help prioritise individual or collections of defects for attention.

Once captured, all of the data can be viewed in our OmniVision viewer application. This application allows the user to navigate through, review and prioritise defects, viewing images as they go.
