The RDS, Railway Deformation System, is a non-conventional monitoring system designed by Sisgeo for automatic survey of longitudinal deformation of the rail tracks and the twisting of sleepers.
RDS permits to monitor the rail track geometry as:
- Longitudinal level: measured in “mm” as a difference of level between two points located longitudinally at certain preset intervals;
- Transversal alignment: measured in “%” as inclination change of two sleepers located at the same intervals of longitudinal.
Compared to the traditional systems, including topographic surveys, RDS offers to the Customers either high performances and significant reduction of the operating costs.
In fact when the system is correctly installed there is not field activity required by technicians at site; RDS can be managed also by a single operator on the Web.
