Project Description
Automatic Train Operation (ATO), and automatic driving in general, are popular discussion topics. Technological opportunities abound and many safe ATO implementations already exist. However, safe implementation of ATO isn’t possible everywhere on every system. Your task is to evaluate the safety of ATO in general: Which hazards are introduced by removing the train driver? Do level crossings become more dangerous? How to respond in case extreme weather is forecast? Do we really need fences or platform screen doors to prevent people and animals from wandering onto the railway tracks? Is the current set of rules and regulations still applicable, or do they need to be reconsidered? How would ATO affect European and Dutch railway laws?

What we offer you
– Work at the cutting edge of ERTMS development and innovation, investigating unexplored concepts;
– Gain wider knowledge and experience from experts nationally and internationally;
– Visit, and learn from, our many projects in the field, whether they are ERTMS related or not;
– Work within a dynamic and inspiring team eager to teach, develop and collaborate.

This challenging graduation project can be adapted to the requirements of each faculty and further personalised in consultation with Professor Rolf Dollevoet (Railway Engineering) and your department.
