ENSCO Rail V/TI Featured in May 2016 Issue of SAICE Civil Engineering Magazine

The South African Institute of Civil Engineering (SAICE) magazine recently published an article written by Matthew Dick and Jackie van der Westhuizen titled, ‘Vehicle / Track Interaction: Continuous real-time autonomous condition monitoring to effectively manage ‘state of good repair’.

The definitive five-page article, published in the May 2016 issue, presents the increasing use of autonomous track inspection vehicles, and the role of vehicle / track interaction (VT/I) diagnostic equipment to determine the ‘state of good repair’, i.e. identifying and prioritising potential failures before they occur.

Dick and van der Westhuizen describe in detail how ENSCO’s VT/I autonomous systems, in use for more than 15 years, provide near real-time detection of vehicle events caused by track condition risks to improve track safety and enable proactive maintenance planning. The VT/I system is in wide use in the US, Canada, Mexico, and Australia.
