CPILS

New generation of Compact Pantograph Inspection Laser Scanners (CPILS)

CPILS will deliver a new eye-safe scanner for real-time automated condition analysis of the pantographs (roof mounted current collectors) on light rail electrified rolling stocks. Based on novel laser technology and high speed cameras, CPILS with improved signal-to-noise ratio enables unprecedented accuracy and reliability for light rail systems monitoring under city outdoor daylight and different weather conditions - positively impacting operational punctuality and increasing passenger safety.
