Predictive analytics

Wayside detectors collect valuable data that is analyzed to anticipate issues with locomotives, railcars and track infrastructure so that we can take preventive measures before an incident occurs.

  • Our predictive analytics have reduced online failures by 91% - significantly reducing the risk of derailments, rail fatigue and service interruptions
  • Our patented algorithm provides a safety and competitive advantage, with 86% of all equipment setoffs confirmed defective versus industry average of 65%
  • We invest over $800 million per year, replacing and updating depleted assets such as rail, ties, ballast, signals, and bridges
