Automated freightwagon brake shoe detection. Increased railroad safety with preventive maintenance

Automated freightwagon brake shoe detection

INCREASING SAFETY OF RAILFREIGHT

Camco Technologies introduces automated brakeshoe wear & tear detection. Worn or missing brake shoes can affect the performance and function of the brake system impacting braking force, stopping or braking distance.

Worn brake blocks can also increase wear and tear of the wheel thread. The deformation of the train wheel could lead to derailment and cause serious consequences.

AI-DRIVEN RAIL BLOCK WEAR DETECTION

Camco Technologies AI brake-shoe wear & tear system includes adapted camera hardware with embedded image analysis software trained to detect brake-shoe thickness in real time and at different speeds. Neural networks have also been trained to detect missing brake blocks.

Rail OCR Portal

CAMCO RAIL OCR PORTAL

The automated brake shoe wear & tear application is an optional feature available for the Camco rail OCR portal. The captured data is automatically linked to the wagon number. This allows pin-pointing worn brake blocks and corresponding rail wagons in the operator’s Train Gate Operator application.

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Automated brake shoe checks are possible 24/7 and problems red-flagged even before periodic visual inspection by maintenance staff. The information accuracy and instant data availability improve preventive maintenance management and contribute to railroad safety.
