A route examination system and method automatically detect (with an identification unit onboard a vehicle having one or more processors) a location of a break in conductivity of a first route during movement of the vehicle along the first route. The system and method also identify (with the identification unit) one or more of a location of the vehicle on the first route or the first route from among several different routes based at least in part on the location of the break in the conductivity of the first route that is detected.
1. A method comprising: electrically detecting, with one or more processors disposed onboard a vehicle, plural locations beneath the vehicle of breaks in electrical conductivity in one or more conductive rails of a route during movement of the vehicle along the route; comparing, with the one or more processors, the locations of the breaks in the electrical conductivity with designated locations of non-conductive areas in one or more routes, the one or more routes including the route traveled by the vehicle; determining, with the one or more processors, o...
