JACKSONVILLE – At first glance, CSX’s autonomous track assessment cars (ATACs) look much like a regular boxcars. In reality, however, ATACs carry advanced sensing and communications technology to detect track defects and send information automatically to the company’s Engineering database.

These cars operate on traditional CSX trains and gather critical inspection data that allows us to closely monitor track conditions even while travelling across the network. Watch the video below to learn how CSX is using this innovative inspection technology to enhance rail safety.
