Real-Time Accurate Position and Protection of Rail Transport (RAPPORT)

Safe and efficient delivery of rail services relies on accurate location and monitoring of fleet assets. Limitations of existing systems restrict the capability to provide accurate train locations, particularly in long track sections where positional recording is infrequent and local information may be unreliable. This talk reports the latest findings on the benfits of real-time accurate location and timing information of trains on network capacity and on incident responses.
