THE HAMMING CODE H (8,4) - A GIFT FROM HEAVEN TO THE MODERN SIGNAL ENGINEER

HAMMINGKODEN H (8,4) - EN GUDAGAVA AT DEN MODERNA SIGNALSAKERHETSTEKNIKEN

The Hamming code H (8,4) has great advantages compared to other error-correcting codes when used for railway signalling purposes. Its format and capacity makes it well suited to the various tasks in signalling systems as well as to the hardware available in the market. The article describes some of these advantageous properties and gives some examples of how they can be used to combat dangerous failures (failures to the wrong side) in transmission as well as in computation of information in railway signalling systems.
