Tram and LRV applications
Tram Signalling is different to other railway applications in that the vehicles operate in an open environment together with all kinds of traffic: pedestrians, bicycles, cars, buses etc. Typical applications include accurate positioning of the vehicle, street crossing signalling and priority demand, speed limitation, selective door opening and passenger information systems.
Real-time information can be exchanged between on-board and track-mounted equipment. This two-way communication can be used to update the trackside signalling system of routing, destination ID, driver ID etc, or – when reversed – signalling status, speed control, switch status etc.
