IoT Wireless Monitoring Solution for Rail
Loadsensing by Worldsensing
Loadsensing is the leading industrial monitoring solution by IoT pioneer Worldsensing. Loadsensing enables near real-time data acquisition of geotechnical, geospatial and structural sensors as well as remote device, data and network management. Engineers and experts tasked with industrial asset monitoring can now capture sensor data through Loadsensing edge devices and send information to the cloud for 24/7 connectivity management. With over 1,000 network deployments connecting over 170,000 sensors around the globe, Loadsensing is rapidly becoming the new standard within industries such as mining, construction, and rail.
Track Stability and Geometry Monitoring
Monitoring the railway cant and twist and differential settlement to ensure that the rail track meets quality and safety parameters to continue being operational.
Surroundings Stability Monitoring
Monitoring of slope and embankment stability and slippage, retaining wall inclination and cracks, tunnel convergence and rock fall around the rail tracks.
Rail Track Subsurface
Monitoring of subsurface activities to prevent possible defects in track, sleeper and ballast brought about by construction along the tracks or inside tunnels.
Surrounding Construction Monitoring
Monitoring on construction activities not directly related to the rail operations which may have an impact on the rail track stability (i.e. buildings, highways, tunnels).
Rail ballast monitoring condition is a challenging task because the material electromagnetic properties are sensitive to both the ballast grading and water content.
Case Study: Tunnel Construction Monitoring for the U5 Metro Line Extension in Germany
Geodetic and geotechnical monitoring with Loadsensing data nodes and gateways helped manage construction-related risks for a metro line extension project in Frankfurt city centre. Read the full success story.
