Automatic Wayside Wheel Surface Inspection System

TreadView is an automatic Optical Wheel Surface Inspection System. TreadView is designed to inspect wheel tread surface and flange area at normal track speeds.

This system offers visual inspection of complete wheel tread and flange surface using optical imaging and laser scanning. The objective of the system is to determine any surface abnormalities of the wheel surface that can be detected using a high resolution imager and a high speed laser scanner.

TreadView deploys a unique state of art digital imaging and laser scanning technology for maximum accuracy and efficiency. The product benefits from sophisticated image processing algorithms to assess wheel tread and flange surface condition from acquired multispectral multi-illumination images.
