Successful conclusion of the SecuRAIL project – a system aimed at enhancing passenger safety on railway platforms

23. June 2023.

The final demonstration of the SecuRAIL project and the developed prototype took place at Erdberg metro station, operated by Wiener Linien from Vienna. The system provides reliable detection of dangerous situations at railway stations. It automatically detects passengers or objects that fall from the platform onto the track, suspend the traffic and alerts the security staff. New features can be added, such as “trap and drag” accident detection, which prevents a train from dragging behind a passenger or other object grabbed by a train door. The system is particularly well-suited for lines with autonomous trains and stations where installing platform screen doors may not be feasible.
