The engineering railway market sees a growing number of electronic systems being incorporated into trains and subway systems to ensure passenger safety and railway efficiency.

The major impact of computers is in the areas of vehicles (locomotives, high-speed trains, metro-trains, etc…) and of system technology (traffic management, train protection, passenger information, passenger safety, etc…)

A major impact on vehicle technology is in train protection and control. That can include the control of vital functions (e.g., drive, brake, power supply, tilting technology), safety management (doors, light, etc.) and convenience functions (heating, air conditioning, etc.) inside the vehicle.

Electronics inside a rail vehicle have to meet severe requirements in term of:

  •  Robustness and reliability
  • Safety Integrity
  • Long-term availability
