Drone survey, inspection and monitoring for the Transport industry
Equinox’s Drones offer a cutting edge Drone solution for the Railway and Roadways industry. We have helped various Railways and Roadways agencies in project planning, project construction monitoring and inspection of railway and roadways infrastructure. We conduct aerial survey, inspection and monitoring using high-end surveying drones equipped with high resolution sensors for superior Data quality with upto centimeter level accuracy. We have a team of experienced Drone pilots and GIS experts working around the clock to deliver best results in or before given time.
We provide Aerial survey Data like orthophoto, elevation models, terrain models, 3D Models, thermographic data, etc with very high accuracy that helps in maximizing efficiency and ensuring accountability in Railways / Highways projects.
Our Aerial Inspection service for railways / highways infrastructure includes Railway Track Inspection, Railway Infrastructure and assets inspection, road inspection, Bridge inspection, etc. In a periodic Aerial inspection we help railways and roadways agencies to keep track of their critical assets and avoid catastrophic damage. Our experienced pilots can collect aerial Data in less time while assuring the railways and highways safety standards even on very high traffic railway tracks and roads without interfering traffic flow.
Pre Construction Survey
Our premium quality drones can hover desired heights at nearly 20-50 mph. We have assisted railways with our aerial survey and aerial monitoring services, and empower them to effectively inspect potential land for new Railway tracks, station yards, railway stations, etc. The first step includes an extensive survey of the land to ensure it is viable for further construction. Our experienced drone pilots who solely employ high-end surveying drones can collect data in a fraction of the time at lower costs than conventional methods. After capturing comprehensive data, our team of GIS experts processes and produces varying topographical maps and 3D Models portraying Topography, Utility Lines, Drainage Slopes, and existing risks to test the feasibility of the new project's feasibility.
Project Progress Monitoring
This stage plays a significant role in controlling the budget of the project. Through our Aerial Construction Monitoring Solution, Railway project managers can reduce the overall construction time needed. Lesser the time invested, lesser the cost! However, to ensure that we do not compromise on quality and deliver up to par, our excellent and skilled drone pilots are always present. They consolidate Aerial data covering all dimensions of railways plans while maintaining all the safety standards. Our Post-production team processes the aerial video of the project and highlights critical information such as unfinished overbridge pillars, Half-done construction sites, etc. Track detection and standard measurement is also an essential aspect of railway inspections incorporated by us.
Keeping a record of all assets and resources is one of the most significant aspects of any construction type. We help Project managers to regularly track onsite stock materials during Construction Monitoring and boost the efficiency of projects. Managing cutting-edge technology like Machine Learning, we triumphantly achieve 99% accuracy in stockpiles Volume Estimation. Our proficient drone pilots have promoted various companies and government agencies with asset control through their far-reaching data collection from numerous topographic data points for sound and reliable management.
Railway Buildings & Bridges
Allowing you to access places that are hard-to-reach or simply hazardous for humankind, aerial inspection is the optimal solution. Railway bridges, for example, is an infrastructure that needs comprehensive and accurate assessment. Without endangering work personnel and being economically responsible, drones allow details of the structure to be revealed and analyzed. Our GIS specialists produce multiple 3D models and topographical maps to secure the structural integrity of Buildings and Bridges.
Drone inspection is the optimal method for scheduled inspection and maintenance of high traffic railway tracks. Our established drone pilots acquire Drone Data quickly while sustaining all railway safety standards. Our GIS team then reconstructs the high-resolution aerial images obtained into several topographical maps like 3D models, 3D Point Cloud, 3D textured mesh, etc. Images procured through track inspection, thermal inspection, structural inspection, etc. are perfected by the process of Orthoimagery. The data obtained is used to determine the length of the track, detect possible dangers, and support railways to bypass any catastrophic damage.
TSS & Level Crossing
We are proffering 10x faster Aerial Inspection as opposed to traditional methods for the crucial supporting infrastructures like Level crossing or Traction substation (TSS). Using exceptional RGB and thermal sensors, our pilots accumulate complete visual data that satisfy inspection requirements. This data also acknowledges and identifies potential concerns with substation conditions, vegetation growth, or security breaches. Level crossing, which is an intersection of a railway line and road/path, are areas that necessitate additional safety measures. Thus, we aid officials to guarantee the safety of level crossing through broad collections of geo-tagged visual images in a short period.
500 KM Line Covered
We have already covered more than 500 km of railway track and helped project managers and site engineers in decision making.
Upto 50 KM Railway Line Per Day
With Experienced Pilots, GIS engineers & High-end Survey Drones we can easily scale up to cover 50 KM of railway track a day.
Faster Data Delivery
We have team of GIS experts working around clock to process and analyse the Drone survey data to deliver on or before time.
