Protection of the overhead line in the Gotthard Base Tunnel

After 17 years of construction, the Gotthard Base Tunnel finally opened to passenger and cargo traffic on 11 December 2016. Deployed as a sensor solution for protection of the overhead line, LMS511PRO laser scanners from SICK help ensure that the trains operate on schedule through the 57 km railway tunnel, the longest in the world.

The LD-MRS UAV detects penguins even in their black tails

The darker the object, the harder it is to detect as the distance increases. But penguins in the Antarctic can now keep their black tailcoats on when a drone hovers overhead and the integrated laser scanner registers them. For scientists who count penguin colonies in order to collect urgently required information about the effects of global climate change, the combination of a laser scanner and flying robotics is a new technology that certainly receives a warm welcome.
