Things you should only try at home, not when surrounded by a crowd of angry people
I started writing lately. As a novel writer I needed some guidance. In this piece curate some tips that have helped me in the process.
Disruptive drone approach for the inspection and monitoring of railways
The tCat is a LiDAR gauge for rail OLE (catenary) measurements
Maths and physics are usually presented to the students the way the front stage is presented to the auditorium: what´s going on in the back is hidden. You are supposed to be smart enough to guess it, even though the men who developed those abstractions built them by placing one brick of concrete over the other.

Auscultator of bimodal and contactless catenary, comprising: # – horizontal movement and measurement system, with horizontal movement subsystem, linear displacer (7) perpendicular to the track width; measured horizontal distance subsystem; subsystem detection of the inner face of each rail; and control subsystem, for systems integration, implementation of the application and communication with the operator. # – vertical measurement system. # – installation assistance system that projects laser lines for reference to the installer and correctly position the catenary with respect to the center of the track. # – And control system, for systems integration, implementation of the application and communication with the operator.
OBJECT OF THE INVENTION The present invention can be included in the technical field of rail transport, in particular, within the field of installation and maintenance of overhead contact lines (LAC).More specifically, the object of the invention is a measuring device, for measuring, without contact, LAC parameters, which has great speed and precision in measurement.
