Vehicle Autarkic Positioning as a Basis for a Low Cost Train Protection System on Secondary Lines .
Abstracts of the 7th World Congress on Railway Research - WCRR , S. 86, Montréal/Canada, ''6 2006.
The presented paper shows an innovative approach to a vehicle autarkic localisation system for railways,
providing cost-efficient position information for various safety- or non-safety-related systems especially for
protection systems on non-equipped secondary lines in a cost efficient way. This is the main focus of a
project called “DemoOrt” which consists of developing a platform with an onboard, autonomous and
vehicle-autarkic technology, a reference measuring platform and a safety analysis methodology. This
approach integrates and uses available as well as innovative technologies with the main focus on satellite
based positioning (GPS, GALILEO and EGNOS).
