Automatic Train Undercarriage Inspection With Gatekeeper

Automatic Train Undercarriage Inspection

Why is Gatekeeper’s automatic train undercarriage inspection system so special? Read on to find out.

At Gatekeeper, we are immensely proud of when our technology is utilized to help keep people safe. Our automatic train undercarriage inspection system, the GKR-TR11, is deployed on many border crossings, mass transit systems, and even to monitor the transportation of spent nuclear fuel. The system is able to scan each train car’s undercarriage to provide two high-resolution virtual 3D images of each car. What makes our automatic train undercarriage inspection system so special though, and why should it be used worldwide?

Removing Human Error

The unfortunate reality is that we cannot rely on traditional methods that require the knowledge, attention span, and intervention capabilities of security personnel to be free from flaw. The GKR-TR11 takes human error out of the equation by being able to identify the type of car, any foreign objects or modifications that may be present, and then alerting personnel of any anomalies or potential threats. No longer do we need to rely on the limitations of human knowledge or reaction time, but instead, are able to rest easy knowing that an automatic train undercarriage inspection technology is doing the heavy lifting for us.

How Does It Work?

While Gatekeeper’s automatic train undercarriage inspection system may seem too good to be true, there are a few simple steps that make it function easily and competently. As trains pass over the patented dual-view scanner, which is embedded in between the two train rails, two high-resolution, virtual 3D digital images are created of each car’s undercarriage. These images are then compared to reference images of a regular rail car stored in the system database. If anything out of the ordinary is noticed, the system places a red ring around the anomaly and activates an alarm.

Who Is It For?

The GKR-TR11 is capable of integrating with central servers, which will maintain the database for reference images and tracking train activities. It can also be used with our container code reader to keep track of the movement of containers which will link back to the train’s manifest. This is ideal for passenger train stations, loading and unloading points, bridge crossings, border crossings, or anywhere that may be in need of extensive security protocols. Don’t rely on conventional means, put your trust in Gatekeeper.
