GNSS based train localisation for automatic train operation
B. Stadlmann, S. Mandl - GNSS based train localisation for automatic train operation - Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on ITS Telecomunications, Warschau, Poland, 2017, pp. 7
This paper presents a practically tested solution for the GNSS based train localization of autonomous driving trains. When driving trains without driver on an open access railway track like a regional railway line obstacle detection is compulsory. This obstacle detection requires a reliable and very accurate autonomous train localization at reasonable low costs. The presented solution is based on a set of low cost sensors with GNSS as a vital part of the sensors. The data of the sensors are input for an Extended Kalman filter.
