Wood Tie Grading. Aurora assigns one of four grades to each and every wood tie based on more than 20 variables, including plate cut, surface roughness, decay and cracks. Grading can be customized to your railroad’s standards and used to generate detailed compliance reports and tie cluster analysis.
Concrete Tie Inspection. Over time, Rail Seat Deterioration (RSD) can cause a crosstie to no longer support and restrain the rail. Aurora uses advanced shape recognition to identify RSD and pad wear, as well as the condition of fasteners and insulators.
Rail Base Corrosion Assessment. Chipping, cracking and splitting are usually telltale signs of Rail Base Corrosion (RBC), most commonly found in tunnels. Aurora can assess the severity of RBC by continuously measuring the width of the rail base and assigning a grade to the severity.
