When autumn storms rage or snow masses in winter weigh heavily on rotten trees then chaos in rail traffic was often pre-programmed in recent years.
Tracks had to be closed and train connections interrupted or delayed. In order to be able to react to such incidents an automated, drone-based system called “Freerail” for vegetation monitoring will be developed.
The DRONES magazine has highlighted the current status of the FreeRail project and reports in detail in its current issue 02/20. Download the article here (German only).
The kick-off report about the scope of the project was published here in 2019. If you need further information, feel free to contact us
