Automated inspection of railway assets

Funder: Innovate UK/Omnicom

Contact: Professor Richard Wilson

Visual inspection of tracks and switches is crucial to the safety and efficiency of the UK rail network. Omnicom Engineering runs vision systems mounted on the front and underneath inspection trains, which generate hundreds of miles and many terabytes of data each day. Working with Omnicom, the project uses state-of-the-art artificial intelligence techniques to automatically identify and classify faults on the rail network.
