Grade Crossing Monitoring by L.B. Foster is an essential safety solution for rail crossings, utilizing obstacle detection technology to ensure a crossing is clear.

Safer Rail Journeys

Designed to detect obstacles on the ground and around the edge of the barrier lines, the LIDAR solution delivers unique small object detection protecting children and adults as well as vehicles and other large objects.

Key Benefits

Improved:

  • Reliability of detection in all weather conditions

  • Accuracy of obstacle detection down to 4.5”

  • Availability due to reduced maintenance routines

  • Flexibility in utilizing intelligent algorithms (velocity, direction , etc.)

Reduced:

  • Life cycle costs due to reduced maintenance and product replacement cycle

  • Train delays due to near zero false alarms

Equipment Protection

The LIDAR is protected by rugged steel housings with motorized shutters, which prevent vandalism as well as contamination and damage from passing trains.

To complement the LIDAR, we have designed a CCTV monitoring system which records the complete crossing, including the road traffic lights and provides crossing violation reports for enforcement of dangerous driving offenses and hard evidence for grade crossing risk analysis.
