To identify wear and developing faults to tram tracks, engineers would manually survey or deploy specialist machinery to scan the line, a process which is both time consuming and laborious. POLY TRACK uses 5G’s positional accuracy and real-time data transmission to detect rail imperfections on both tram and rail tracks through sensors installed on the Chassis (Bogie) of the vehicle. These sensors help operators identify and ensure maintenance is carried out to the track before imperfections deteriorate and will help optimise safety and maintenance.
