Gauging Surveys

Rolling Stock Gauging surveys are far more than purely scanning the vehicle in question, it requires an understanding of what information is needed, how it needs to be aligned and then exported. Aligning the vehicle in the scan data is crucial to maximise the benefits of the 3D scan. Any alignment errors could increase the vehicle width to the point where false clearance issues are found which could lead to incorrect gauging decisions being made.  


Akriveia have 11 years first hand experience of the UK gauging process and are familiar with the requirements when it comes to providing accurate Rolling Stock gauging data. This doesn't just apply to capturing the data but also when it comes to processing, aligning and exporting the data for import into the gauging vehicle model.


Akriveia have the tools and experience to undertake a full 360 degree Rolling Stock survey safely, efficiently, and accurately.  With a long range Lidar scanner, reference spheres and survey mast (capable of scanning vehicle roofs from floor level) you can be certain that all of the information needed will be captured with minimal input required by the depot.

With in house developed tools designed and built purely to ensure quick and accurate identification of rail references, validation of survey area size, positioning of vehicle and adjustment for yaw, Akriveia are the perfect partner when it comes to capturing accurate full Rolling Stock gauging surveys.
