We provide various service options to ensure easy accessibility for a diverse range of customers during the inspection process.

Contract Services

RailPod’s contract services offer rapid deployment at any level crossing. When inspections are due, our trained technicians operate the RailPod vehicle. Customers receive real-time exception reports on the track, accessible both remotely via the RailPod data portal and in the field.

Flexible contract terms cater to specific needs, whether inspections occur weekly, monthly, or annually. All data is available 24/7 for detailed analysis, run-on-run assessments, and historical reporting. Our operations staff collaborates with each customer to maximize right-of-way time while avoiding revenue operations.

Owner Operated Services

The RailPod system is intentionally designed for easy operation, even by track workers with limited training. In relatively short training sessions, owner-operators can quickly and safely operate the RailPod technology. The system benefits from 24/7 “shadow” operations, where RailPod staff continuously monitor all movements to ensure uninterrupted inspection data. This commitment to monitoring ensures the highest level of service in the industry.

RailPod operations staff go beyond monitoring; they also provide valuable recommendations to customers. Based on usage patterns, they suggest service and maintenance actions to minimize downtime and prevent failures in the field.

As an owner-operator, you have several advantages:

  • Flexible Scheduling: You can use the RailPod system at any time that suits your needs.
  • Cost-Effective Inspections: Maximize inspection frequency while keeping costs down compared to contract services.
  • Web-Based Software Updates: Enjoy software updates without additional engineering fees or costly vehicle upgrades.
  • Sensor Upgrades: If you need a new sensor, we offer a “loaner” inspection vehicle during upgrades, so downtime is not a concern.
