The Track Contamination Detection System (TCDS) utilises pre-existing track circuits in the network to monitor rail conditions. It can provide real time updates on how contaminated a track is after each train pass over, and has the ability to monitor demanding areas 24/7.


Full Network Coverage

Each 500-1000m section of the network can be a sensor to indicate what condition the rail is in with each passing train. 

Targeted Cleaning

When a section is not optimal, a treatment can be sent for cleaning. Making treatments efficient and effective. 

Post Clean Evaluation

After cleaning, it can be used to check how well the section was treated by that specific solution.

How it works

The TCDS allows us to create a heatmap with insights into key problem areas. Rail operators can use this to tailor cleaning operations to maximise efficiency of The LaserTrain and other treatments. This product is at prototype stage. Due to the variation in track circuits that pre-exist in the field, we have a selection of non-invasive and invasive options available.
