    • Abstract:
      International Electronic Machines Corporation (IEM) has developed and is now marketing a state-of-the-art Wheel Inspection System Environment (WISE). WISE provides wheel profile and dimensional measurements, i.e. rim thickness, flange height, flange thickness, flange angle, diameter, reference groove; brake pad thickness measurements; and flags out-of-round wheels and flat spots. WISE provides modules for: wheel profile, crack detection, flat spot detection and brake pad management system. It easily integrates with existing way-side equipment and works seamlessly with existing railroad rolling stock management systems. During this project, IEM has completed the successful installation of the WISE modules for wheel profile, crack detection and brake pad management at the CSX Transportation hump yard in Selkirk, NY. This report details the thorough testing and validation of these modules through the project that was funded jointly by NYSERDA and NYSDOT. IEM is in advanced talks with Class 1 railroads regarding WISE, and has been selected to install WISE in the new transit system in Sydney, Australia.
