Fast, flexible and accurate transit space analysis using laser technology

The issue of transit space measurement has become increasingly important to rail operators. With the introduction of newer survey technologies there are a number of options available. The drawback of the various options is most often cost in both money and track access time. This paper describes a locally developed process of data acquisition, pre-processing and clearance analysis that provides an alternative method at a reasonable cost in terms of money and track access time. The solution is configurable to local standards and has proven to be a valuable filter to target the more costly and time consuming processes to the critical locations only, where their higher accuracy can be justified. A number of examples are provided of different situations encountered and the level of investigation required for each such example.
