Modern operating procedures with high demands on efficiency and safety call for a continuous, vehicle-based positioning system. The functionality of vehicle-based positioning sensor systems and the required communication systems can be simulated in the railway specific laboratory, RailSiTe. In order to demonstrate the quality demanded by standards and regulations the sensors must be field tested as well. For that, the institute has constructed the test and measuring vehicle RailDriVE. The RailDriVE is a half van, half railcar hybrid which has the capability to both drive to the test site, and deploy train wheels to run on tracks.
