Currently several approaches are being discussed for the future of mobility: from air taxis to underground tunnels, to modular modes of transport, to hyperloops. We will analyze how high-speed rail systems operating under low pressure environments have the potential to more efficiently connect cities while reducing the effects of urban sprawl. Prototypes to actually build these systems will be discussed, as well as the need to efficiently integrated these into existing infrastructure in order to achieve both maximal throughput. Nonetheless congestions originates from the fact that over 60% of the available physical space on city roads is underused by empty cars, which have a great effect on pollution. By working towards both a cultural change and a technology revolution, it is possible to efferently solve traffic.

Add to calendar 04/11/2019 10:40 04/11/2019 11:00 RailAcoustic Broken Rail Detection Systems One of the most critical requirements for the railway transportation systems is the safety measures to be taken to avoid accidents. There are some accepted methods of satisfying this need to a certain level. A modern signalling system is one of those measures. While the type of signalling system vary according to the national and international rules, regulations and norms, some of the safety related topics are still in need of improvement. Early detection of broken and damaged rails are one of the most critical topics waiting to be solved effectively.
A new and novel technique, called “RailAcoustic” is one of the most advanced broken and damaged rail detection systems available today. The system is based on generating an acoustic signal at any time and point on the rails and sensing the propagating acoustic signals on both sides of the signal injection point with sensors located at up to 2 Km away and even more. The system utilizes acoustic signals on all axis at the point of sensing. The sensors located on both sides of the faulty rails sense both passing thru and reflected signals. All data coming from these field-distributed sensors are collected and processed together and an accurate conclusion is reached.

There are some accepted methods of satisfying this need to a certain level. A modern signalling system is one of those measures. While the type of signalling system vary according to the national and international rules, regulations and norms, some of the safety related topics are still in need of improvement. Early detection of broken and damaged rails are one of the most critical topics waiting to be solved effectively.
A new and novel technique, called “RailAcoustic” is one of the most advanced broken and damaged rail detection systems available today. The system is based on generating an acoustic signal at any time and point on the rails and sensing the propagating acoustic signals on both sides of the signal injection point with sensors located at up to 2 Km away and even more. The system utilizes acoustic signals on all axis at the point of sensing. The sensors located on both sides of the faulty rails sense both passing thru and reflected signals. All data coming from these field-distributed sensors are collected and processed together and an accurate conclusion is reached.

There are some accepted methods of satisfying this need to a certain level. A modern signalling system is one of those measures. While the type of signalling system vary according to the national and international rules, regulations and norms, some of the safety related topics are still in need of improvement. Early detection of broken and damaged rails are one of the most critical topics waiting to be solved effectively.
A new and novel technique, called “RailAcoustic” is one of the most advanced broken and damaged rail detection systems available today. The system is based on generating an acoustic signal at any time and point on the rails and sensing the propagating acoustic signals on both sides of the signal injection point with sensors located at up to 2 Km away and even more. The system utilizes acoustic signals on all axis at the point of sensing. The sensors located on both sides of the faulty rails sense both passing thru and reflected signals. All data coming from these field-distributed sensors are collected and processed together and an accurate conclusion is reached.

It is especially important that methods that are rapid, efficient and fitting for regions under seismic threats are used and these up-to-date methods are included in our national projects
