The purpose of this final year project was to develop a computer vision based condition monitoring system to provide train door’s condition parameters to engineers. This can be implemented by using Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and RPi camera (M). This project focused on capturing video and detecting foreign object when the train door is in operation. At the same time, it will measure and record several parameters of the train door. For example, door opening/closing displacement, door opening/closing speed and time taken for train door to open/close. With these features, this system would successfully reduce trains’ downtime and improve the efficiency of maintenance by pinpointing faulty door components to engineers. Furthermore, it will sufficiently reduce maintenance cost because it would be able to prevent replacement of unbroken parts.
