The rail transit system, which offers people reliable and practical mobility, is essential to modern society. Obstacle detection has become a crucial issue during rail transit operations. The rail transit system is gradually integrating LiDAR and visual image processing technology, which has become a crucial instrument for obstacle detection, to ensure the safety of passengers and normal operation.
First, let’s take a look at how LiDAR technology functions in rail transit. LiDAR uses the emission and reception of laser beams to measure the distance and shape of the surrounding environment. In rail transit systems, LiDAR is deployed on the front or around the vehicle to provide important real-time data by scanning the surrounding environment and measuring the distance between obstacles and the vehicle.
LiDAR is an important tool for rail traffic obstacle detection since it can acquire measurements quickly and accurately. The LiDAR detects obstacles and communicates this information to the vehicle’s control system so that appropriate actions may be taken to prevent a collision or other risky circumstances.
In addition to LiDAR, visual image processing technology is also widely used in obstacle detection in rail transit systems. By using cameras and advanced image processing algorithms, visual image processing technology can analyze and identify obstacles in the surrounding environment in real time. Visual image processing technology is widely used in obstacle detection. It can identify and analyze various types of obstacles on the road, such as parked vehicles, pedestrians, animals, etc. Based on this information, the rail transit system can take timely actions, such as deceleration and braking, to ensure the safety of passengers.
Rail transit systems can provide a more thorough obstacle detection method by integrating LiDAR and visual image processing technologies. While LiDAR provides accurate distance data, visual image processing technologies may further examine the types and properties of obstacles. A better degree of safety and security may be offered to passengers because of this integrated application’s improved detection accuracy and dependability.
In addition to obstacle detection, LiDAR and visual image processing technology can help rail transit systems in other ways. These technologies can, for example, be employed in the measuring and maintenance of tracks to assure their smoothness and safety. Furthermore, they can give supplemental direction during the process of arriving and departing the platform to guarantee the train comes to a precise stop.
In brief, as technology advances, LiDAR and visual image processing technologies will play an increasingly crucial role in obstacle detection in rail transit systems. Their use allows the rail transit system to run more securely and effectively, while also providing passengers with a comfortable and dependable travel experience. We look forward to the future development and innovation of these technologies, which will result in more enhancements and modifications to the rail transit system.
