ENSCO’s Clearance Measurement System (CMS) provides real-time, high resolution Right-of-Way Clearance Assessment of Railway Lines including Structure Gauge, Tunnel Clearance, Object Encroachment, Track Centerline Offset, Rolling Stock Kinematic Analysis and Platform/Track Interface Analysis (“Mind the Gap”).

Measurements are made at track speed with a LiDAR distance laser that is typically mounted on the front of the vehicle and produces a high-resolution, virtual model of your railway corridor.
 

Clearance Measurement System


Structure Gauge

Structure GaugeThe ENSCO Clearance Measurement System automatically takes measurements at track speed with a LiDAR distance laser and measures the structure gauge to ensure the safe transport of rail passengers and cargo without the risk of getting too close to the infrastructure.

Tunnel Clearance

Tunnel ClearanceUncertainty about tunnel clearances can be costly and dangerous. The ENSCO Clearance Measurement System measures and validates tunnel clearance and provides the clearance assessment data necessary to avoid tunnel and rail system damage.

Object Encroachment

Object EncroachmentThe ENSCO Clearance Measurement System detects vegetation and other objects encroaching on rails that might cause unsafe conditions. The Clearance Measurement System measures track clearance and detects vegetation and other objects encroaching on rails that might cause unsafe conditions.

Track Centerline Offset

Track Centerline OffsetThe ENSCO Clearance Measurement System automatically takes measurements at track speed with a LiDAR distance laser. Using the CMS software, you can calculate the minimum distance between adjacent tracks and identify exceptions.

Vegetation Encroachment

Vegetation EncroachmentThe ENSCO Clearance Measurement System detects vegetation and other objects encroaching on rails that might cause unsafe conditions. The Clearance Measurement System measures track clearance and detects vegetation and other objects encroaching on rails that might cause unsafe conditions.

Platform/Track Interaction “Mind The Gap”

Platform Edge Track InteractionThe ENSCO Clearance Measurement System helps you make minding the gap easier by measuring and managing rail platform/train interface for safer passenger boarding and deboarding. The Clearance Measurement System calculates the horizontal and vertical offset of the platform edge from the track centerline.

Rolling Stock Kinematic Envelope

Rolling StockThe ENSCO Clearance Measurement System automatically takes measurements at track speed with a LiDAR distance laser and measures the structure gauge which varies with curvature of the line and maximum speeds allowed. Using the CMS software, you can calculate the rolling stock kinematic behavior based on measured parameters and features of train design that may affect the kinematic envelope.

The Clearance Measurement System is available as a purchased system or as a contracted service.
