Herzog Technologies unveils RailSentry™

A groundbreaking advancement in railroad safety launched at Railway Interchange 2023


This September marked a significant milestone for Herzog Technologies, Inc. at Railway Interchange, the largest railway exhibition and educational conference in North America. As part of the expo, HTI unveiled its most advanced innovation to date, RailSentry™.  The response was phenomenal, exceeding all expectations. The expo allowed for a comprehensive system demonstration, which garnered positive attention and emphasized the industry’s enthusiasm for this technology and its potential.

RailSentry is designed to detect people, vehicles, or other objects exhibiting dangerous behavior on the tracks and alerting the appropriate entities at the right time. It stands as the only solution that seamlessly integrates with Positive Train Control (PTC) and the locomotive onboard unit to notify engineers of potential hazards ahead.

Originating in HTI’s Cedar Rapids lab, RailSentry began with a simple mission: revolutionize railroad safety to prevent train/vehicle and train/trespasser accidents.  “The project has been challenging, but it is something we all take great pride in.” shared Greg Malicki, HTI Software Engineer II. RailSentry quickly grew and, in true Power of the Team fashion, engaged various HTI team members to involve Systems Engineering, Software Development, and Project Management.

RailSentry has made a dynamic entry into the market, signaling an exciting beginning for this groundbreaking technology. Jennifer Fredericks, HTI Systems Engineer III, added “The feedback received not only validated our vision for RailSentry but also inspired us to explore additional applications.”
