Railroad probe examines the main structural elements (rail, sleepers, track fastenings, fishplates, joints, ballast, road crossings, switches etc.) of a railroad using a vision and a laser inspection system in addition to an ultrasonic contact-free transducer module. The inspection system stores and processes the scanned data to detect defects of the rail and provides GPS coordinates with the defect data to the operator or operation central. The operator can then remotely analyse the stored data and confirm a critical defect or update the maintenance schedule for a non-critical defect of the track.
