This is a past event.

Senior Research Scientist with Michigan Tech Research Institute (MTRI), Colin will discuss an innovative I system for inspecting rail-grade crossings that he and his team are developing and the steps they are taking to make it available nationwide on a commercial basis.

MTRI Inc. facilitates the commercialization of intellectual property of Michigan Tech and the Michigan Tech Research Institute. Brooks has developed Crossing-i, an automated, drone-enabled grade crossing inspection system. The Crossing-i system can determine whether vertical approach grades create a risk for vehicles to get stuck on tracks, assess the adequacy of visual sightlines at the crossing, and locate relevant assets such as gates, lights, signage, etc. It uses high-resolution images collected via drone / uncrewed aerial system (UAS) that are then processed into 3D data for analysis.

Registration required, register by January 22nd:
