Sensonic – Landslide and Rockfall Alerts

Our natural hazard detection system warns railways in near-real-time of potential landslides or rockfalls along their rail routes as they occur. This supports operators to take action where a rockfall or landslip has been detected to:

  • Avoid accidents Maintain safety of railway passengers and staff
  • Prevent further damage to railway infrastructure and rolling stock
  • Precisely locate the issue

Our landslide and rockfall detection works by monitoring vibrations along entire railway routes to listen for characteristic vibrations caused by falling rocks or moving earth. It uses an optical fibre running alongside the track to detect vibrations providing protection along the entire fibre route.
