A temperature sensor assembly for monitoring railroad car wheels includes an array of temperature detectors arranged to generate a temperature profile of the wheel. The array may be formed integrally with imaging elements and signal conditioning elements on a single IC chip. The assembly may be arranged to monitor the wheel either transversely or in parallel to the direction of wheel movement.
A wheel temperature sensor assembly for railroad systems for monitoring the temperature of the wheels of railroad cards, said assembly comprising: projecting means for projecting an image of an railroad wheel portion; a detector array consisting of a plurality of infrared temperature detectors, each detector generating a temperature indicative signal, said detector array receiving said image from said projecting means and generating a two-dimensional profile of said wheel portion; and processing means for processing said temperature indicative signals an...
