RAILWAY ASSET MANAGEMENT AT LIGHTNING SPEED

Horus helped Birlik Mapping out to build a custom mobile mapping system. Birlik Mapping, headquartered in Ankara, is one of the leading mapping companies Turkey was looking for a specific solution to capture railway assets at very high speed.

The camera system is mounted on a high-speed train and must be able to handle speeds of 250km/h. These speeds are crucial because they allow the train to join regular train traffic and avoid the need to close down railroad lines for inspection purposes. Currently, the train is operational on the 562km high-speed railway track between Ankara and Istanbul.
