AUTOMATIC IDENTIFICATION OF RAILROAD CARS BY MEANS OF MICROWAVES

AUTOMATISCHE WAGENIDENTIFIZIERUNG MIT MIKROWELEN BEI DER EISENBAHN

A microwave system is described. Every car is equipped with a reflector, in which the 12-digit car numbers are fixed by the frequency distribution of 26 microwave resonators. When passing the sensing site, this reflector is interrogated by an fm microwave signal in the frequency band from 3. 1 to 4. 2 GHz. By the use of modern techniques and the integration of all system components, a reliable and maintenance-free system was developed which is economically suitable for railroads.
