A New Dimension in Rail Safety Technology


It may look like a portal to another dimension — and in many ways, it is. CSX’s first Train Inspection Portal (TIP) southeast of Waycross, Ga., is ushering in a new era of railroad safety technology. Equipped with ultra-high definition cameras and high-powered illumination, the automated system produces 360° scans of railcars passing through the portal at track speed. Advanced machine vision technology and software algorithms identify defects and automatically flag cars for repair. TIP is one more way CSX is improving safety, increasing efficiency and creating the best-run railroad in North America.
