CSX Opens First New Advanced Car Scanning Portal

CSX said it has begun operation of its first Train Inspection Portal southeast of Waycross, Georgia.

The portal has ultra-high definition cameras and high-powered illumination that produces 360-degree scans of railcars passing through the portal at track speed.

The carrier said advanced machine vision technology and software algorithms identify defects and automatically flag cars for repair.

CSX said the portal seeks to usher in a new era of railroad safety technology.
