As a carrier, turnout is an extremely important part of transport, when railways is operating. So the detection of turnout should meet the requirement. However, the detection effort is mainly completed manually at the present stage, which is low accuracy. Thus the study of the switch rail detection system based on laser sensor is necessary. In this paper, we discuss the scheme of the switch rail detection by using Gocator 2030 laser sensor and SIMENS 840D numerical control system. We study the algorithm and data collection of the switch rail detection based on laser sensor. This detection system provides accurate data collection and information display for the enterprise of producing turnout. After the test, the system has a faster detection speed and higher detection accuracy.
