The Track Worker Protection System (TWP) developed as personal protection system by Intelligence on Wheels is in the process of getting certified as a new safety system with an assigned safety integrity level (SIL). These developments are prepared and coordinated in the frame of the CertiPro project supported by the European Space Agency (ESA).
For the best possible outcome it is considered of critical importance that all relevant stakeholders in the rail sector can raise their voice to contribute to the requirements of such an innovative system. Thus we invited the sector to join us for a stakeholder workshop and let us know what they think. Due to the ongoing pandemic and its implied travel- and contact restrictions, the workshop had been organized as online-only event with prepared video recordings of the current state of the protection system as part of daily operations at the premises of a railway operator.
