DEVELOPMENT AND DESIGN OF THE ICE-M MULTIPLE-SYSTEM HIGH-SPEED TRAIN: INTEGRATION OF TRAIN LOCATION AND OPERATIONAL CONTROL SYSTEMS. FINAL REPORT
ENTWICKLUNG UND KONSTRUKTION DES MEHRSYSTEM-TRIEBZUGES ICE-M: INTEGRATION BLT-SYSTEME. SCHLUSSBERICHT
Direct high-speed rail services between Germany and its western neighbors are feasible as far as the different train control systems are concerned. Until such time as a standardized European system is finalized, the problem can be solved by means of a crossover between the existing train control systems. The design of an intelligent system crossover will enable the system being entered to provide the system being exited with necessary operational information. A device interposed between the line systems will transform the data of one system to the other, without there being any change in the basic internal functioning of either system. In consequence to the high expense it seems not possible to rig trains with country specific systems for more than a few limited relations. In the future a standardized train control system will allow European high speed traffic without system breaks. Several European research projects are engaged in this task.
