|I&T Wish||Online Monitoring of Rail Widths to Prevent Derailment
(REF : W-0017)
|Summary and Challenges||
The objective of the project is to develop a system for online monitoring and detection of rail widths in MTR mainlines, sideways and maintenance depots to prevent derailment of trains.
The system should be able to detect any abnormal conditions in the rail width or the rail fixing system. In the event of an abnormal condition, an appropriate warning should be forwarded to the concerned train driver and the operation control centre for necessary action.
The project calls for a review of methodology for the detection of rail widths and a recommendation of the most suitable detection system for the railway system in Hong Kong.
|Expected Outcome||To monitor the width of rails of railway line to prevent derailment|
|Expected Trial Duration||8 months|
Development of an online monitoring system for rail widths
|Propose I&T Solution||Closed|
