In partnership with Chiltern Railways and the RSSB we are developing ‘VUES‘, the Vehicle Underside Examination System that promises to reduce maintenance outages across the railway.
GOBOTiX and Chiltern Railways have worked together to develop VUES, a continuous automatic inspection system using computer vision. Specialist cameras and lighting are used to detect anomalies such as overheating components, damaged equipment and leaks of certain fluids. The train will pass over VUES several times each day without an interruption to its normal service routine and VUES will report any anomalies detected which can be further examined by a skilled Chiltern Railways engineer if required. Anomalies can be categorised by urgency so that appropriate action is taken.
