RailSiTe®: Railway Simulation and Testing
The RailSiTe® is DLR‘s rail-specific simulation and testing laboratory. In 2012, the RailSiTe® has been accredited for the functional conformity testing of ETCS on-board units in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005. RailSiTe® permits accurate technical and operational simulations, and testing of railway control and safety systems. The complete functional chain of the rail system can be modelled in detail, ranging from trackside control and safety technology to interlocking stations, and from track infrastructure and the air gap between train and track to the on-board systems.
RailSET®: Railway Simulation Environment for Train drivers and operators
As part of their functions as train drivers, control centre operators or rail traffic managers , humans in the railway system interact with several technical interfaces – both on board the train and in the control centres. The effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction with which employees perform their tasks affect the safety and efficiency of the railway system and are in turn affected by various factors related to the interactions between human, machine and environment.
RailDriVE®: Railway Driving and Validation Environment
The Institute of Transportation Systems has developed the RailDriVE® testing and measurement vehicle for the testing and development of continuous on-board positioning systems. This road-rail vehicle operates on the road for the preparation of tests and is then deployed directly to the test track as a railcar.
