HOW FREIGHT RAIL DELIVERS THE 21ST CENTURY

May 23, 2018

Technology fuels America’s freight railroads, making a modern network capable of meeting today’s transportation challenges and those of the future. Integrated teams of data scientists, software developers, and engineers develop and apply technology across every aspect of the nationwide freight rail network. Today’s trains are powered by 200-ton locomotives equipped with supercomputers capable of processing a billion data points per second to maximize operational and fuel efficiency. Smart sensors throughout the network assess the health of the nation’s rail infrastructure and equipment to ensure safe operations. Railroad experts at command centers analyze this data to develop real-time maintenance and operational recommendations that improve fluidity and productivity of the rail network.
