XERRA – a better way to analyse LiDAR for rail engineering compliance

XERRA is a leading LiDAR processing and analysis platform that can consume any industry-standard LiDAR dataset for rail network wide analysis and reporting.

XERRA uses machine learning algorithms to quickly analyse rail infrastructure and inform more predictive maintenance practices.

XERRA was created to address industry demands and automate inspections of rail infrastructure to relieve pressure on maintenance crews and reduce total time spent in the danger zone.
