Railway Localization

Group Leader: Dr. rer. nat. Martin Lauer




The possibility to shift the infrastructure for localization from the track into the train lowers the costs and increases the efficiency and safety of railway operation. The position of the train can be determined by combining different types of sensors, such as eddy current sensors and satellite navigation systems and digital track maps.

In this research area we are addressing techniques that allow on-board localization for trains and light railways.
