Transit Track Worker Safety Protection Demonstration Project

This report describes the demonstration of an innovative system, TrackSafe, to reduce the hazards of working in the track environment. TrackSafe provides improved location awareness and highly-relevant alerts to train operators and roadway workers. It provides this enhanced level of safety through the use of proven Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology and use of the existing transit infrastructure as much as possible so that the system can be installed quickly and inexpensively. This document describes the deployment of the system, provides a summary of developments to further enhance the system for transit agencies and railroads, describes the testing of the system, and summarizes user feedback.
