Title (EN) WHEEL INTEGRITY MONITORING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE SURVEILLANCE D'INTÉGRITÉ DE ROUE
Abstract:
(EN) A wheel integrity monitoring system for monitoring the integrity of a railcar wheel in an automated manner while the railcar is in operation (i.e., traveling) and comprising a light source that projects light onto the wheel and a light detector that detects the light reflected by the wheel. The wheel integrity monitoring system is configured to analyze the reflected light to determine if the wheel is defective.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système de surveillance d'intégrité de roue pour surveiller l'intégrité d'une roue de wagon de manière automatisée pendant que le wagon est en fonctionnement (c'est-à-dire, en déplacement) et comprenant une source de lumière qui projette de la lumière sur la roue et un détecteur de lumière qui détecte la lumière réfléchie par la roue. Le système de surveillance d'intégrité de roue est configuré pour analyser la lumière réfléchie pour déterminer si la roue est défectueuse.
