The company now offers the service of Track Geometry Measurement. A Ford F-350 has been outfitted with the company's inertial based Hyrail Geometry Measurement System and is available on a contract basis. All typical geometry parameters are measured: surface, alignment, gauge, twist and superelevation. Reports are provided based on FRA defect standards. GPS location information can be added to the data. With the small envelope of the complete vehicle, the company says this is an ideal solution for metros, short lines and regional railways for their track geometry measurement.
