LaseWVM is a laser-based and contactless volume measurement, position measurement and speed measurement of wagons in a train loading station or train unloading station.
The Measurement System
The LaseWVM - Wagon Volume Measurement system consists of 2 x 2D laser scanners that communicate with the LASE system application software and continuously record measurement data.
2 x 2D laser scanners are positioned above the track behind or in front of the train loading/unloading station and measure longitudinally to the direction of travel and transversely to the direction of travel of the wagons and the tractor unit, so that the speed of the train and the position of the wagons are determined. The system measures the empty or full volume, the respective filling level or checks whether the wagon has been completely emptied. The function here depends on the process of the train loading/unloading station.
