Cordel has been built to capture imagery and LiDAR data from in-service trains using modern, cost-effective and miniaturised sensors, to automate large volumes of data processing using world class machine learning and to deliver intelligent and actionable inspection results. Cordel enables railway operators to automate inspections and surveys of assets across entire networks in near real-time.

Automating Network-Wide Infringements & Clearance Surveys
AK Car Lidar | Australia | Geometry car
Infringement surveys for any network are costly and generally require access by workers to the rail corridor to perform measurements and define the level of infringement. ARTC sought to deploy a safer and more technology-driven inspection solution across its national railroad network.
ARTC Pilot – Automating Track Patrol
New Technologies | Australia | Track Patrol Replacement
ARTC carry out regular fortnightly corridor track patrols across its 8,500+km network. The process is costly, dangerous and prone to human errors. Cordel have collaborated with ARTC to provide an alternative program which can work across the entire Australian network.
"Results from trials have been encouraging and we are continuing to embed this new capability as the preferred method of inspections for transit space monitoring across the entire ARTC Interstate Network."
