High-Precision Train Localization


Highly accurate real-time positioning of trains in any environment – using advanced on-board sensors and adaptive sensor fusion technology.

Within the context of ongoing digitalization, the highly accurate real-time localization of trains has become a key topic for the railway industry. To effectively manage train traffic in future and maximize the utilization of existing networks, advanced traffic ma­nagement systems need precise information about the exact positions of all moving trains. Moreover, accurate localization paves the way for a variety of advanced key applications such as Automated Train Operation (ATO), making it a prerequisite for modern railway systems.

Current methods for train localization use cost-intensive infrastructure elements placed along the route, supplemented by train-borne sensors and satellite systems. 

Advanced localization solutions rely on satellite positioning, advanced on-board sensor technology and adaptive sensor fu­sion technology. These systems provide precise and track-accurate real-time information on the position and speed of any train, even in environments without a satellite signal.
