Measuring Rail Gauge Using Laser Scanners

In order to keep commerce moving, railroad companies as well as shippers, rely on inspections and preventative maintenance to keep trains moving safely. Train rails are regularly inspected for defects and one of the criteria for train rail inspections is rail gauge. In the United States, the standard rail gauge is 56.5 inches and it is important that rails do not get closer than 56 inches or further than 58 inches.
