Robust Railway Crack Detection Scheme Using ARM IRTRDS Algorithm

K.N Sreekumar, G Sankar, M Kumaresan

Abstract


In India, most of the commercial transport is being carried out by the railway network and therefore, any problems in the same has the capacity to induce major damage to the economy-notwithstanding the societal impact of loss of life or limb. This paper proposes a cost effective yet robust solution to the problem of railway crack detection utilizing a method that is unique in the sense that while it is simple, the idea is completely novel and hitherto untested. The paper will demonstrate the technical and design aspects in detail and also provides the proposed robust crack detection algorithm. The paper also presents the details of the implementation results of the ARM IRTRDS utilizing simple components inclusive of a GPS module, GSM Modem and IR LED based crack detector assembly. The proposed scheme has been modeled for robust implementation in the Indian scenario.
