Greenville-based VisioStack was awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project from the U.S. Department of Transportation earlier this month. The last time a South Carolina company received a U.S. DOT SBIR was 1996, according to a VisioStack press release.
VisioStack’s proposal is ‘Aerial Crossing Inspection System (AXIS)’
What is AXIS?
AXIS is a highway-rail grade crossing inspection system that uses unmanned aerial vehicles and machine learning for inspections.
Inspections produce a 3D mesh of a railroad crossing that will be analyzed to determine a risk profile based on number variables including line of sight and changes in elevation.
VisioStack provides enterprise data management and business intelligence services that focus on improving operational maintenance.
