|Project name||Interdisciplinary Research on the Railway Control and Safety Systems of the future|
|Acronym||AG Signalling in the DB RailLab|
Railway Control and Safety Systems (RCSS) are of critical importance for the realization of train operations, which ensure the safety of passengers, freight and infrastructure, as well as the optimal utilization of the capacity of the railway network.
Currently, a window of opportunity is opening for the renewal of RCSS technology: On one hand, new technologies like continuous train detection are emerging, and the European Signalling and Safety System ETCS is introduced – on the other hand, many of the partly 100-year-old interlocking systems in Germany are nearing the end of their life cycle.
Mastering this renewal will allow this environmental-friendly means of transport to stay sustainable under increasing competitive pressure.
AG Signalling is working interdisciplinary to realize the vision of a completely digital RCSS technology.
Railway Operations will be controlled by a uniform, platform-independent RCSS technology, which
