This brochure describes the FRA Improved Track Inspection and Data Collection Technology Programs which utilize the Track Geometry Test Cars and Vehicle Dynamic Measurement Systems for the purpose of improving railroad safety, efficiency and economy. The data produced by the cars--through precise measurement of existing track structures--are used to plan effective track maintenance programs and to support the design of tomorrow's high-speed railroads.
