Rail ‘AfA’ – Sensat – Drones survey four stations in just two days

About the project

On Access for All Schemes, track access for traditional station surveys can take months to arrange. The team upgrading four London Stations, turned to Sensat’s UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) technology using drones for a quick and safe solution with added benefits.

The data rich surveys for all two stations were completed in just two days and have been exported into Sensat’s 3D visualisation platform which is as simple to use as Google allowing easy sharing and use beyond the core team.

Moving to the future, Network Rail now have a 3D cloud point model for new station enhancements which ultimately could feed into a ‘digital twin’ of the rail network to facilitate dynamic asset management and the benefits it can unleash.
