Abstract

The rise in prominence of safety and maintenance cost saving related issues in railway systems is becoming more and more an important driver in the design and deployment of sophisticated Wayside Train Monitoring Systems (WTMS). In the last 20 years computer vision based WTMS have evolved from simple Hot Axle Bearing Detectors (HABD) to sophisticated Video Monitoring Systems (VMS).
