The Rail Clouds project aims at providing a general overview of the possibilities to process 3D point clouds from railway areas. The project is carried out in cooperation with Amberg Technologies and focuses on the following questions:

The outcomes of the project shall provide information about possible applications of automated systems for 3D point cloud processing in railway infrastructure. Such systems could play a particularly important role in safety applications of the future.
