Satellite Services for Level Crossing Safety
ESA, CGI and VTT would like to invite you to an Awareness Webinar on 21 May 2014, 13:30-15:30 CET detailing the findings of the LeCross Study. The event will be of interest to railway infrastructure managers, innovation groups and safety authorities who are concerned with safety challenges at level crossings.
The LeCross Study aimed to identify and develop new operational systems to improve the safety at railway level crossings using space based capabilities. Level crossing safety remains one of the highest priority areas of improvement targeted by railway operators and authorities. A particular difficulty lies in providing cost-effective solutions in remote, low density traffic sections of the network, which often contain large numbers of crossings. This study has resulted in the innovative SAT-LX system, a satellite-based advisory warning system designed to improve safety at remote or rural level crossings with no active protection. The consortium is aiming to get feedback on this system and assess interest on potential collaborations for a pilot service in 2015.
