New railway signaling system


Author/s: Alicia Larena (UPM), Andrés Manglano (UPM)

The use of smart materials to improve safety and control of rail transport systems can be an important innovation due to the fast and reliable response which is needed to avoid failure. This paper proposes an installation by smart material devices which transmit coded information on the status of environment variables to ensure the safety of passing trains.

Keywords: Railway signalling, safety and control.
