INDUSI (Punktförmige Zugbeeinflussung – PZB) is the most widespread automatic train stop system in the world. It has been installed on over 75 000 km of railway track just on the conventional European Railways (excluding, private operators and metro railways around the world). One of the reasons for its success is the fact that it […]

Railway level crossings have since they were first built, been hazardous, and have claimed the lives of many who misjudged the speed of an approaching train. Now, in an attempt to improve safety at level crossings, a Croatian company, Altpro, has developed an advanced electronic level crossing safety system that has been extensively tested and […]

Summary: There are many level crossing systems that use punctual double-channel wheel detection for switching on/off the level crossing, usually combined with short audio frequency track circuit, loop or axle counting section for detection of the train stopping on the road area. Today, there are even better ways to activate/deactivate the level crossing, for example […]
