Rockfall Monitoring

Learn more

Rockfall Monitoring uses LiDAR technology to scan above the track for obstacles that pose a risk to trains. Taking the place of traditional slide fences and used in rockfall prone areas, the system can monitor miles of rock faces. If a stationary object is identified on track, an alarm is sent with images of the obstruction and a relay signals to stop trains in the area.
