Virtualization of the Track Environment

Digital Environment Profile (tmENV)

Track distance to important points and obstacles can be identified remotely.

At tmc, we measure track infrastructure quickly, digitally and with high precision. Our Digital Environment Profile (tmENV) adds yet another new dimension to track measurement. tmENV makes it possible to identify many parameters of the track environment, such as distances from the track to relevant points. These relevant points can be the platform edge, the contact wire or the adjacent track. In addition, tmENV can even be used to precisely determine the ballast profile and, in the near future, to check the clearance gauge. Has it been violated or not? For example, if anything reaches into the virtually measured clearance tunnel, you can take measures from your desk.

Product Details

The Digital Environment Profile (tmENV) consists of a rotating laser scanner that is attached to a rail vehicle. The scanner creates a virtual image of the track environment. tmENV can then find and identify certain objects with the help of algorithms in real-time and on board your machine. Collected measurements, identified objects and obstacles as well as the clearance gauge can then also be accessed from anywhere using the web-based platform that is part of our tmENV. The platform itself is intuitive and easy to use.
