Automatic Wayside Truck Inspection System

TruckView is a wayside truck (bogie) inspection system designed to operate on passing trains at normal track speeds. TruckView is a vision based system, which uses a high speed and high definition imaging system to provide high resolution images of every truck for inspection and measurement. Many truck related defects can cause serious short term and long terms problems and possible derailments. For a reliable and dependable inspection, every truck is viewed from two angles, top and bottom.

TruckView is designed to inspect many features of bogies including fasteners, side frame condition, bearing and its related components, friction wedge, springs, and many more. For example, an alarm is generated for excessive wedge rise. Another example

is that the system inspects the spring condition to find missing and broken springs as well as its compression to detect imbalanced loads. This is used to compare the spring compression on two sides of the truck and evaluate the load balance of the truck and the car.
