LEVEL CROSSING OBSTACLE DETECTION SYSTEM
Our Level Crossing Obstacle Detection System SALVIS LC is aimed at reduction of risk and number of fatal accidents at railway level crossings.
A three-dimensional (3D) laser scanner is installed on the mast near the level crossing. Before the train’s passage it starts scanning the entire level crossing area. If dangerous objects like cars or humans are detected, the system will alert the interlocking system or wireless communication system and immediately stop the approaching train before the level crossing.
The superiority of our SALVIS solution in comparison with other obstacle detection technologies are: advanced objects recognition features (broader field of view, high point resolution, low object reflectance), reliable and safe operation in harsh railway environments (dirt, dust, vibrations, rain, snow, high temperature, immunity to direct and reflected sunlight), low initial investment, easy installation and use, low maintenance costs etc.
