Combining ingenuity and innovation, Norfolk Southern is the first North American freight railroad to develop and deploy an autonomous track geometry measurement system that is mounted on a locomotive.

Developed by NS’ track inspection group, this mold-breaking system enables the railroad to conduct precise and more frequent inspections of mainline track with a locomotive that is pulling freight. It is another example of NS’ commitment to achieve industry leadership in use of advanced technologies to enhance safety, increase operating efficiencies, and better serve our customers.
