A cost comparison of innovative train integrity control

Dezember 2020 | Alessa Eckert, Florian Brinkmann, Benedikt Scheier

Innovative systems for on-board train integrity control are being developed in the Shift2Rail joint undertaking’s innovation program for advanced traffic management & control systems for the purpose of reducing the numbers of trackside axle counters or track circuits. The German Aerospace Center (DLR) has conducted a study of the life cycle costs (LCC). The expected costs have been compared with the potential savings achieved by eliminating these infrastructure components. Furthermore, a simulation model has been used to investigate the effects on capacity, if the new technology allows moving block operations...
