Throughout its 40-year history, the company has accomplished lots of projects and facilities, both related to the railway as industrial sectors. Here below follows a list of the most representative projects by TELICE, classified by their typology

CIFIL – System for the characterization and revision of railway infrastructures using LIDAR technology

PROJECT CIFIL – System for the characterization and revision of railway infrastructures using LIDAR technology

CUSTOMER Desarrollo junto a la Universidad de León y la Politécnica de Catalunya
DATE Inicio 2016 / Fin 2017

CHALLENGE: To create a system of measurement and characterization of the electrical railway infrastructures that saves time, reduce costs and workforce.

WHAT IS THE RESEARCH? The project has the goal of generating new systems of measurement of railway infrastructure, adapted to the precision and functionalities demands currently and in the near future by the sector.

The overall objective is therefore to develop a new system for the recognition and inspection of electrical railway infrastructures based on Laser Imaging Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) technology, through the development of new equipment and systems, data processing algorithms and Software, resulting in a system that ostensibly improves the cost savings and the use of personnel in this task.

EXPECTED RESULTS: Based on the above, the present project proposes the realization of a new development that, finally shaped in a fully functional prototype, allows

  1. Develop a new adapted LIDAR system for the accurate and continuous measurement of railway electrical infrastructures.
  2. Develop new algorithms and the necessary software to be able to interpret in an agile and precise way the data captured by the new LIDAR system developed, so that in the end the final prototype has full capacity for measurements, data processing and presentation Of them, with a degree of automation that demands a minimun human intervention in the operation of the system.
  3. Implement the previous systems in a new adapted displacement system, with positioning and reference capabilities adapted to the requirements of the previous systems.
  4. Integrate all systems and demonstrate the capability and viability of the system in simulating and real environments.
