2019 Winner Profile

Railinc

Project Description:
Railinc implemented Clear Path™, an application that helps railroads plan the movement of trains through a major gateway, for the Chicago Terminal, the nation's busiest freight rail hub. Stakeholders were interested in technology that weaves near real-time train dispatching data into both analytics and mapping capabilities. The system includes a multi-layered geographic map of the entire terminal, featuring train locations, tracks, yards, corridors, control points and other critical reference information about the Chicago Terminal. Train location and status are now available down the precise position on the track that the train is occupying, displaying switch and signal information and train routing authority for each train.
