ABOUT US

Laser focused on safety, reliability and punctuality.

World-class engineers constantly innovating

LPS was started with the aim to make use of rapidly developing laser technology and apply it to various business challenges. The use of laser technology was first put on rails two decades ago, trialled on Railtrack infrastructure in 1997. Today we focus on the friction loss that railway companies face in Autumn due to leaves on the line.

How it's going

2016
Standard laboratory and prototype testing.
2018
Working commercially with the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) part of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority of New York, to help solve contamination problems.
2020
LIRR deployed a second LaserTrain at 
an increased speed of 44kph, further increasing efficiencies across its network.
2022
LaserTrain can operate at speeds of 100kph. We are excited to be running prototype trials in Autumn with railway operators in both the UK and US.

''At the beginning of 2020, Harm Medendorp was on the FD list of Young Talents. Almost a year later, he is obviously older, and above all much wiser. He was able to successfully test his invention — laser-preventing trains from getting 'square wheels' in the autumn.''

We’re on the same wavelength

We’re always looking for new opportunities and we can keep journeys on track all around the world.
