AIPL works in three areas i.e. Planning, Structural Health Monitoring and Quality Control & Assurance of Railway Crossings. The planning group deals with urban planning, transport planning, environment planning which includes design and regulation of the uses of space that focus on the physical form, economic functions, and social impacts of the urban environment and on the location of different activities within it. Because planning draws upon engineering architectural, and social and political concerns, it is variously a technical profession, an endeavour involving political will and public participation, and an academic discipline. Planning concerns itself with both the development of open land (“greenfields sites”) and the revitalization of existing parts of the city, thereby involving goal setting, data collection and analysis, forecasting, design, strategic thinking, and public consultation.
The Engineering group of AIPL majorly deals with the structural health monitoring(SHM), the challenges, solutions and added values for SHM are as under:
- Service Life Maintenance of civil engineering structures
- Non Destructive Assessment of the structures and material properties
- Overload Monitoring on varius structures like bridges.
- Durable Structural Health Monitoring and Real-Time Visual Solutions
- Leak and Intrusion Detection using Optical Fiber Sensing
- Risk Based Prioritization of Periodic Inspections
- Concrete Ageing Expertise and Assessment
- Non Destructive Testing (NDT) and Laboratory Testing
- Stress Measurements on existing structure
AIPL also deals in Quality Control and Quality Assurance of the railway crossings wherein AIPL ensures the Outgoing/Customer inspection meeting the quality requirement as per the standards and guidelines for each and every component of the product of railway crossings. Collection of Statistical data for the improvement in quality of railway crossings over a period of time. AIPL also gives recommendations on quality assurance and quality control based on sample based statistical analysis collected over a period of time during contract tenure.
