The three emerging market trends driving the global automatic brake pad inspection system market according to Technavio research analysts are:
- Growing demand for way-side component inspection
- Thermal inspection and use of IoT in railway inspection systems
- Digitalization in railway sector
Growing demand for way-side component inspection
Wayside inspection systems make use of various sensing mechanisms and measures force, heat, visual, and sound parameters to analyze the condition of the rolling stock. The way-side inspection system inspects wheels, brake pads, spring condition, bearing adapters, wedge condition, load balance, and end cap bolts, unlike automatic brake pad inspection systems that examine only brake pads.
Though way-side component inspection systems are capital-intensive, they provide a consolidated solution for all rolling stock elements, reducing the need for any dedicated inspection system that examines only a single component.
“The challenge while inspecting brake pads in a wayside inspection system is the inefficiency in image acquisition of the brake pads. With advances in camera technology, the wayside inspection system can provide a complete solution for rail component inspection,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on automation.
