Vehicle Autonomous Positioning as a Basis for a Low cost Train Protection System.
Proceedings of the ITS World Congress 2006, London, Oktober 2006.
The presented paper shows an innovative approach to a vehicle autonomous localisation system
for railways, providing cost-efficient position information for various safety- or non-safetyrelated
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, vehicle autonomous technology, a reference measuring platform and
a safety analysis methodology. This approach integrates and uses available as well as innovative
technologies with the focus on satellite based positioning (GPS, GALILEO1 and EGNOS).
