Flaws in railway tracks can have catastrophic consequences, so the Regimantas Vegele Railroad Probe has been engineered to perform full-time train safety investigations.

The rail inspection robot examines track integrity using nine ultrasonic air coupled transducers, as well as laser and vision systems. The Regimantas Vegele Railroad Probe runs along the railway line, scanning, assessing and communicating its results to operators who can link problem areas to specific sites thanks to an integrated GPS.
