We present recent results of the R&D for a novel 4D fast tracking system based on rad-hard pixel sensors and front-end electronics capable of reconstructing four dimensional particle trajectories in real time. Particularly relevant results are: i) timing resolution of 30 ps for 55 micron pitch 3D silicon pixel sensors measured in a recent beam test, ii) design and production of front-end electronics prototype chip, iii) a stub-based fast tracking algorithm implemented and tested in commercial FPGA using a pipelined architecture. Tracking performance for a 4D pixel detector for a future upgrade of the LHCb experiment will be also discussed.
