Who, What, When, Where, Why:


Level crossings are a hazard spot for accidents between railway and road traffic. On behalf of the Eisenbahn-Bundesamt (Federal Railway Authority) CERSS Kompetenzzentrum Bahnsicherungstechnik and the chair of railway signaling and transport safety (Dresden University of Technology) will carry out a scientific study on optimisation potential of level crossing systems.
At February 14, the kick-off meeting started the research project. There will be a safety analysis on existing level crossing systems and a potential analysis on used technology of non federal owned and foreign railways as well as innovative technologies.
