Railcars contain hundreds of parts and critical components that must be inspected frequently to ensure safe and reliable operations.
With more than 1.6 million railcars running on nearly 200,000 miles of track in North America, railroads and railcar owners are seeking advanced technologies to keep their operations safe, reliable and efficient. Improving processes in this area is key to improving operations.
Duos Technologies Railcar Inspection Portal (RIP®) is an advanced, AI-enabled railcar imaging system that produces high-resolution images of railcars moving at track speeds. The wide array of crisply detailed images offers a full, 360 ‘all-around’ view of each railcar — not just the top and sides, but the undercarriage as well. An intuitive, streamlined user interface allows mechanical railcar inspectors to scan trains, review railcars and perform detailed, thorough inspections quickly and easily.
The RIP’s optional artificial intelligence (AI) detections help to elevate inspections to a highly automated process. Professionally developed AI models are available to automatically target and identify a wide variety of specific railcar defects, providing inspectors with alerts and notifications. This greatly reduces the inspection time by immediately drawing attention to targeted areas of interest.
Beyond simple imaging, the RIP® is a comprehensive inspection solution with a proven record of success in streamlining railcar inspections.
The vue® is an intelligent imaging system that provides high-resolution images of railcar undercarriage at speeds of up to 70 mph.
The rip® is a modular intelligent visualisation system that provides real-time 360-degree imagery of railcars at high speeds.
The apis® is an intelligent imaging and evaluation system that virtually eliminates the need for routine manual pantograph inspections.
