railway asset checks

Our Solutions

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

Multiple years of rail industry experience has provided a deep understanding of challenges infrastructure managers face, and means we have the latest technologies and techniques to solve problems and help you avoid issues before they arise.

Cordel Advantage

Enabling remote condition monitoring

Cordel solutions offers the ability to perform effective and efficient remote condition monitoring (RCM) on any scale of rail network.

Automate asset inspections and surveys

Using powerful Machine Learning technology developed in real world settings, Cordel enables automated data analysis across entire railway networks.

Keep track of changes and deterioration

Cordel use Machine Learning to map assets, rate conditions, and assess changes on a high frequency basis allowing considerable costs to be saved through efficiency.

Enhanced data-driven decision making

With regular data captures, condition ratings and measured anomalies, analytic condition data can be included in more robust data-driven decision-making processes.

The Cordel Solutions


Transit Space Monitoring

The Cordel platform enables any railroad network to quickly and accurately carry out track clearances, gauging and infringement surveys. Our proprietary data pipelines and machine learning platform automate the most labour-intensive steps in the traditional workflow (processing data and identifying features), enabling us to provide your team with engineering-grade data within hours instead of months.


PTC Asset mapping and change management

The Cordel platform provides networks with the ability to create baseline asset surveys affordably and effectively. At the same time, Cordel provides an easy way to map changes automatically to assets over time. Using best in class Machine Learning and survey lidar, manual asset change requests can be a thing of the past.


Track patrol and inspection verification

Regular track patrols are an essential part of any safe and efficient operating railway. The Cordel platform enables networks to automate manual inspection processes using Lidar and Imagery data from in-service trains. The data is then processed automatically using Machine Learning to generate the inspection reports.


Track & Tie Inspections

Cordel offers a flexible and powerful architecture to assist networks in capturing and processing track-based imagery data with positioning data, using powerful Machine Learning models to improve the accuracy, reliability and usability of track & tie visual condition reporting. Measuring skew and tie spacing allows the system to report on exception of potential defects quickly and affordably.


Ballast Profile Management

Using entire networks worth of survey-grade Lidar and imagery data, the Cordel platform creates ballast profiles every metre. It compares these against idealistic engineering modes and reports via exception any ballast profiles outside the standard, curated ready for review.
