Using modern technology to enhance rail security

Emerging fields of technology are increasingly becoming recognised as an integral component in improving security standards in the rail sector, with great potential to address current and future issues such as level crossing security, train protection, anti-terrorism response and crisis management. Such fields of technology range from modern rail innovations to technology intended to improve current systems and practices. This paper describes the various aspects of modern technology which can be deployed and how these play a role in enhancing the security and efficiency of rail systems and evaluates the costs vs. benefits of such systems.
