HOW SAFE IS THE DB'S TRAIN CONTROL SYSTEM?

WIE SICHER IST DIE ZUGSTEUERTECHNIK DER DB?

The main theme is the development of signal box techniques, from the mechanically to the electronically controlled box, with special reference to technical reliability. Reports are also included of technical safety installations for locomotives and at level crossings, along with information concerning the limits of human reliability. The probability of human error determines incontrovertibly the degree of safety of the overall system in which man is combined with technology. The aim is to reduce the number of auxiliary operations depending on human reliability.
