BNSF has made a financial contribution to help startup firm Island Radar Company in its development of a radar detection technology for safety enhancement along rail crossings. The tool could be used along high-speed crossings and become a viable substitute for warning signals for coming trains, said Island Radar Company President Tom Hilleary. Aside from the prevention of accidents, the radar system could also help freight carriers save on time, Hilleary said.
