OmniSurveyor3D at Rail Solutions Asia
Balfour Beatty Rail are returning to Rail Solutions Asia – This year with the added benefits of Stirling Kimkeran, Head of Technology Development and Solutions – ETS, presenting a paper titled “Bringing the railway into the Office for Safety and Productivity Benefits” and the new OmniSurveyor3D® with VR headset demonstrated at the Balfour Beatty stand.Balfour Beatty Rail is one of the world’s largest rail engineering and services providers and has hands-on experience as a builder and maintainer of railways. BBR’s Engineering and Technology Solutions business comprises a team of 300 staff dedicated to rail infrastructure design and asset management, with products and services covering track condition measurement and visualisation, signalling system monitoring, clearance analysis and track and OLE design. The business is UK based with an office in Kuala Lumpur.
Inspection and maintenance tasks on rail infrastructure can be disruptive, expensive and open to safety concerns. In recent years, improvements in imaging technology have allowed some significant advances in how infrastructure inspection can be undertaken. Solutions are now available that capture information unobtrusive to normal operations and allow many of the inspection tasks traditionally undertaken on the trackside to be carried out in the office. Stirling’s presentation describes two areas where this is making a significant impact on cost, performance and safety.
Omnicom Balfour Beatty’s image and laser based surveying system, OmniSurveyor3D, enables users to survey, model and condition assess their network infrastructure for design, operations or maintenance purposes. Organisations can quickly access any section of their network without having to leave the office. This reduces the number of on-site visits with associated improvements in safety and reduction in cost, time and carbon emissions.
Rail Solutions Asia is regarded by many as the best railway show in Asia. This annual show combines a wide range of exhibition with a comprehensive conference programme and The Annual Congress of the Asian Railway Operators Association. It is ‘A one-stop solution for all your product and information needs’
