Digitizing the french railway network - an open source endeavour
06-28, 10:30–11:00 (Europe/Tirane), Drini

From detecting vegetation hazard to measuring catenary geometry, it all begins with three trains equipped with LiDaR mapping systems, roaming the french railway network.

Let us see how geospatial opensource softwares enabled us to build a cost-effective and comprehensive solution, starting from basic raw data processing up to setting up a geographic information system, full of relevant data that brings up railway maintenance to another level.

Guilhem Villemin, PhD in signal and image processing, was able to broaden his field of expertise to designing railway diagnostic systems focusing on predictive maintenance. As part of his missions, he gained a large expertise in the world of industrial vision, measurement systems and the use of drones. Today, he is Altametris CTO, managing the company's R & D programs.
