FH OÖ Research & Development

The research group at the FH OOE Campus in Wels, Austria, has been active for many years in the field of CCS Systems for regional rail systems, autonomous train systems and automated shunting. With our expertise, we hope to enrich the TARO project in the design of concepts and system architectures, as well as in the development of demonstrators.

The research group was founded in 1999 and began with the development of a computer-aided CCS system, which is in operation on a number of regional railway operators. Key features of the system are satellite-based localization of vehicles and the radio-based transmission of movement authorities, commands to switches, and level crossings. Dynamic passenger information and statistical analysis of operational data enhance the feature set of this system.

Innovative solutions and concepts in the field of autonomous and automated shunting, ATO on regional train systems, automated coupling of cargo wagons and the optimized transport of goods in passenger services are further outcomes of the group in other research projects.

Our contribution in the TARO project will be focused on requirements engineering, specification and design of system architectures based on future international standards, as well as on the development of concepts and demonstrators of future orientated technologies.
