Paper Abstract

The most important feature of means of transportation including rolling-stock is the velocity. Non-contact velocity sensor development for rail measurement car on rail transportation has been developed. Specialized sensor organization is described. Mathematical model of specialized TDI PhCCD has been developed. Simulation software based on the model has been written to carry out the imitative simulation of OVS. Simulation ofthe velocity sensor with some various testing images has been performed. The motion velocity of rolling-stock and calculation accuracy dependencies have been described. Maximum calculation accuracy position at specified areas having good luminosity has been determined where the imager acquires most contrasting and clear images. Images like that may be acquired at open areas. The less luminous areas like at stations, near stations, and at tunnel will have worse accuracy. The calculation accuracy dependence from luminosity has been calculated.
