Ultrasonic distance measuring sensors are widely used in many industrial establishments and particularly in the metrology area. These sensors are used in many engineering disciplines because of their high-precision Characteristics of different methods. In addition, Global positioning System (GPS) receivers and total stations are widely used in geodesy. Using the GPS receivers is very popular, particularly for navigational purposes different techniques. In this paper, a new railway track geometry surveying system, which is designed by integrating the ultrasonic sensor, Fire sensor, GPS receiver, and total station, is introduced. This new surveying system is an alternative to classical geodetic measurement methods that are often used for ARM controlling the railway track geometry, To identification the location of damage detection of Track gauge, and track axis coordinates, which are railway geometrical parameters, can be instantly determined while making measurements by using the New surveying system.
