Ballast Condition Assessment in modern railways using RADAR

Ground penetrating radar (GPR) system has become an attractive non-destructive inspection method for railway track monitoring and maintenance. In generally, this inspection is still mostly performed by visual observation and using cores in specific locations with both methods having clear limitations.

In this research, we are evaluating novel processing algorithms for Railway track inspection based on a full-polarimetric high-resolution GPR system build at the FHR. On the other hand, simulation models are being refined to make them more reliable and accurate for training machine learning algorithms for an automatic track inspection.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.

Brackets

You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).

Phrases

Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
