About the lecture

An important function in the system for the safe running of trains is train detection. The security system needs to know where all trains are in order to issue guaranteed driving authorizations. The commonly used train detection system is an advanced electrical circuit. Not only because this circuit is used by other safety systems, but also because environmental influences play an important role within it. Michiel Veltman explains the functional principles and electrical solutions in combination with a challenging question. Subsequently, Jaap Vermeulen will give a preview of the developments in the field of telecommunication of the new signaling system (ERTMS). How internal developments within ProRail and different insights, complicate the design process.
