Introducing Vogel R3D – the future of rail surveying

A revolutionary new service from the surveying experts at Plowman Craven, Vogel R3D is a unique, UAV-based system that enables the comprehensive surveying of rail infrastructure to a sub-5mm accuracy in a fraction of the time of a traditional survey.

Able to cover even the busiest and most inaccessible areas of the rail network from a working height of 25m, Vogel R3D can capture data from a position of safety even during traffic hours, removing the need for possessions and line blocks, and drastically reducing the exposure of workers to risk. The result is a shortening of programme times and significant cost savings.

Network Rail has called the Vogel R3D system a “game-changer” – take a look at our latest video or find out more about the Vogel R3D system and UAV Rail Surveys.
