SiTrack:One by Leica Geosystems first to make survey-grade 3D point clouds without GNSS for efficient rail maintenance
Leica Geosystems released SiTrack:One, the highly-accurate rail track maintenance and refurbishment system incorporating the Leica ScanStation P40 to generate 3D point clouds, today at INTERGEO.
SiTrack:One by Leica Geosystems ensures complete coverage of the entire rail infrastructure surface without the need to receive GNSS signals for position information. With a one-of-a-kind mounting design, this total solution for rail maintenance and refurbishment produces synchronized engineering, survey-grade 3D point clouds for accurate as-built drawings.
The German engineering firm Vermessungsbüro Riemenschneider GbR was the first to use the SiTrack:One by Leica Geosystems. When converting existing railway tracks in the course of track maintenance for the Deutsche Bahn AG, the firm required complete, accurate and consistent information on existing tracks, clear structure gauge, route topography and civil engineering works. With the SiTrack:One, Vermessungsbüro Riemenschneider GbR experienced significant workflow gains by leveraging the highly accurate point clouds directly into the engineering process.
“The SiTrack:One by Leica Geosystems guaranteed the complete survey of railway sidings with a minimum stay of surveying personnel in the danger zone of rail transport,” said Dipl.-Ing. Andreas Riemenschneider, principal of Vermessungsbüro Riemenschneider. “Thus, the costs of security measures were significantly reduced. The state-of-the-art system conforms efficiently to the demands for survey, visualization, documentation, evaluation and approval of existing and new routes, all in accordance with rail transportation guidelines.”
