By detecting people entering a railway tunnel or walking on an outdoor track, thermal imaging cameras can warn an operator with accurate information and position of the person.
Vehicle detection at railway crossings
Thermal cameras will detect vehicles that have come to a standstill at a level crossing and are blocking the passage for an oncoming train. This way, railway operators can be warned and accidents avoided.
Fire detection in railway tunnels
Thermal imaging can help prevent fires in tunnels, by detecting hot-spots or fires in an early stage. so they don’t have a chance to spread. This way, an early fire alarm can be triggered and fires can be avoided.
Fire detection on train coaches
Intelligent thermal cameras can see starting fires on train coaches much quicker than conventional smoke detectors. They can also avoid false alarms by filtering out unwanted events like cigarettes or lighters.
