Railway inspection can be time consuming, costly, unreliable and cause disruption to the train schedule. That is why drones are quickly becoming the popular choice to carry out railway infrastructure inspection and surveys. Engineers with drones can carry out fast and reliable inspections of railway stations and platforms, railway lines, bridges, and overhead power lines covering an extensive area. Without scaffolding or rope access, there are no disruptions to the train lines. Some more added benefits are the lower risk to human life, more cost-efficiency and greater speed.
Railway drone inspections are a game changer in the rail industry. Conventional inspections are limited to small areas at a time. Our drones can cover much larger sections across and access difficult locations which service vehicles can’t reach. Engineers with drones can offer a faster turnaround time and more detailed survey reports than the traditional surveying methods. The high resolution video, photography and thermal imaging provided by our drones will help you to highlight problematic areas. They will also offer you a different vantage point, impossible to recreate with traditional methods.
Reduce the costs and minimize the risk associated with the slower and less precise methods of conventional inspection. Railway drone inspection mitigates the need for employees to work at great height, in confined and dangerous areas. No need to hire specialist equipment, complex inspection access set up and specialised safety teams. Eliminating this time consuming complex set up by using drones will save you time and money.
Minimize disturbances in train stations and on platforms during busy times. Inspections of stations and platforms are easily carried out with drones. That way issues get spotted early and repairs and maintenance can be scheduled in advance at times when platform usage is low. No need to disrupt daily operations. By sending drones first to assess damage and maintenance, technicians can bring the right tools for the repair job without unnecessary climbs.
