AI for Rail Infrastructure Thermal Stress Condition Assessment

In Canada, thermal stress buildup due to climatic changes can lead to failure of rail structures. Currently, there are no techniques available to continuously monitor the stress state in a rail over long distances. Distributed fibre optic sensing is a promising solution. Due to the extent of rail track infrastructure in Canada (45,000 km), the …
