Four dummies and one tracking device were used for the ‘man overboard’ scenario. Abandoned in the North Sea, they were found and rescued with the help of data obtained from space, air and land.
Using TerraSAR-X data, Berlin Central Station was measured horizontally and vertically over the course of a year. In the warm season, the steel structure of the building expands; in winter, it contracts again. Based on the coloured dots, the maximum deformation in the course of one year can be seen to be in the millimetre range.
In order to protect passengers and crew from rail collisions and minimise the consequences of accidents, an innovative crash concept was tested in early August 2016. This crash concept was developed as part of the extensive research work of the Next Generation Train (NGT) project.
