There are more than 1,000 train derailments per year in the United States, resulting in a significant loss of time, money, and — worst of all — lives.

Relying on manual wheel inspections alone is no longer feasible. But even with automation, railway companies struggle to handle the high volume of images from camera inspection waypoints or lack the data needed to train their inspection models.

SOLUTION

Automated Wheel Defect Detection
