Making Rail Travel Safer with a CodeMeter-Protected Collision Avoidance System

TrainCAS, the collision warning system developed by Intelligence on Wheels (IoW), helps save the lives of rail passengers with a smart three-pronged safety solution. The groundbreaking technologies built into the…

Radio Interference Measurements for Urban Cooperative Intelligent Transportation Systems

Without appropriate measures, interference between the different radio technologies must be assumed and reliable communication for safety-critical applications cannot be guaranteed. To develop accurate and realistic interference models for current…

Fu­ture tech­nolo­gies for railways

It will be vital for the rail system to be able to reliably determine where a train is located. Within the project ‘IMPACT’ a new method of localisation is developed…

Intelligence On Wheels: An Innovative Concept For Train Safety

Some tens of millions of passenger journeys take place on Europe’s railways every day. Nearly all of these journeys pass off with no incident. For most people, most of the…

Better railway collision prevention with TrainCAS, the autonomous Train Collision Avoidance System

Despite the availability of PZB, ETCS and their international counterparts, train collisions are an unfortunate reality on the world’s railway lines. TrainCAS, which has been conceived and developed by the…

Harzbahn wird aus dem All gesteuert

Bild: Eingleisig in die Katastrophe – die Angst vor einem Zusammenstoß auf offener Strecke fuhr früher auch in allen Loks der Harzer Schmalspurbahnen (HSB) mit. Nun ist die dampfende Uralt-Technik…

Avoiding collisions at low cost

A stand-alone collision avoidance system is currently being rolled out on the metre gauge Harz rail network to improve safety on single-track routes. Using direct radio communication between trains avoids…

Smarte Technik in Traditionsloks (German only)

Intelligente Anwendungen machen das Leben angenehmer, bequemer und sicherer – auch den Zugverkehr. Das Zugsicherheitssystem von Intelligence on Wheels kann Kollisionen per Funsystem verhindern. Trotzdem setzen viele Zugbetreiber auf alte…

Railways – SOS for massive safety increase (German only)

Nach Bad Aibling: Obwohl technologisch möglich, wird die Restfehlerwahrscheinlichkeit bei der Bahn bislang nicht durch einfache Kontrollsystem-Kombinationen verringert. Digitaler Alarm, der sogar auf Dampfloks funktioniert: Das ergänzende Kollisionswarnsystem RCAS hätte…

Frontal21

German national TV station “ZDF” showed in their TV magazine “Frontal21” a story about the train collision avoidance system as cheap and fast approach to increase the level of safety…
