The application of fibre optic cable in passenger warning systems on platforms – the project results

April 2019 | Elena Queck

Timeliness is one of the most important characteristics for ensuring the sufficient effectiveness of a passenger warning system. The current passenger warning systems are reaching their limits. The use of fibre optic cable constitutes an alternative. This article represents the findings and results of the use of fibre optic cable as the device for indicating the approach of trains to a passenger warning system in conjunction with the pilot on the 1733 line from Fulda to Wurzburg.
