Critical Asset Audit
Graded Crossing Detection
Graded crossings are any locations where a road, sidewalk, or pathway crosses the track surface. These crossings can range from narrow footpaths, to large highway crossings and have vastly different appearances.
Turnouts are the locations where the railroad splits from a single set of tracks to multiple. Turnout detection automatically detects and catalogs the locations of turnouts.
Clearance Point Detection
Clearance points indicate the closest point to a turnout that two standard-size locomotives can pass by each other without colliding. These can be indicated by rail side indicators as wells as by hardware derailer systems.
Control Signal Detection
Control signals can indicate the direction, clearance, and allowed speed of a train through a junction. These can have a large variety of appearances including dwarf, pole-mount, cantilevered, and bridge mounted configurations.
Hardware derailers are located along track surfaces to intentionally derail a train in the event of unauthorized train movement or rolling stock. These devices come in a large number of configurations are are often indicated by track-side signage.
Critical asset signage includes a number of different sign types and classes, including: Mileposts, station signs, speed signs, etc.
