railway track, drone, image processing


Train is the main mode of transportation that we often use, the train itself can be used as a tool for shipping goods and mobilizing passengers, this transportation is very unique and has its own path in the form of steel strings across from hundreds of kilometers, railroad bearing structures currently exist which uses concrete and wood, the railroad is very vital and is an important supporting facility. The process of railroad monitoring is complex and complicated, takes a long time, the previous method is simple and conventional by tracing the railroad tracks manually or using a geometric gauge mounted direl or also known as railpod, railpod will follow the rails and will provide report if there is a train track that is damaged, broken or shifted, this research will create an image-based monitoring system using drones as a track monitor, another way is to take pictures using satellite data that will provide clear information about road conditions before being passed by the train, the railroad data processing system by using image processing can display visual responses up to cm in size, the response appears if there is a shift in the path then the system directly provides data in the form of location and shifting paths on the main computer, this system is more c eTat in checking and analyzing train track data with high accuracy and precision up to 90%, in addition to imagery from satellite images can use drones, drones themselves are very easy in maintenance and use and are able to cut production costs and even workplace accidents in the field workers themselves can be avoided because the drone is able to reach the track and railroad that is difficult for example through the tunnel or the railroad track along the hills and densely populated.
