Pulse lasers, accelerometers, inertial equipment … these are some of the cutting-edge tools integrated into the impressive track-geometry cars traversing NS tracks.
To ensure our network’s continuing health, Norfolk Southern must collect vast amounts of track-health data to intelligently design our track-maintenance program. State-of-the-art geometry cars are one of the critical, high-tech solutions NS employs to accomplish this important task.
With these advanced tools, NS track-geometry engineers are able to gather massive amounts of data on the condition of our extensive network using half the manpower as other railroads. This constant access to accurate and current data allows NS Engineering to predict track conditions years ahead of time.
Superior, technology-driven visibility enabling intelligent, data-driven maintenance: just one more way we’re reimagining the future.
