Omnicom Engineering’s OmniVision® represents a technological revolution in rail track inspection by combining high-speed high-resolution cameras and cutting-edge pattern recognition software to automate the detection of track defects. The system improves both the quality and safety of the process whilst saving huge amounts of time and money. OmniVision® has been successfully installed on several specifically designed Measurement & Inspection trains to relieve rail workers from the task of manually inspecting rail infrastructure. Omnicom chose Multipix Imaging and their extensive vision component knowledge to assist them in achieving this successful solution which combines many different vision components including Basler Linescan cameras, FLIR Thermal cameras, MVTec HALCON imaging software, IO Industries Core DVR recording systems and Prophotonix lighting.
Steven Tait, Engineering Manager at Omnicom Engineering, has recently described the application and it’s success in a Vision Systems Design article …read the full story here
