The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management set up the ERTMS Programme and commissioned ProRail to realize the rollout. In Dutch vernacular, ERTMS is often used, but the system that replaces the legacy dutch system is ETCS Level 2. This rollout of ETCS Level 2 in infrastructure is currently being done on 7 sections of track in...

To help maximize utilization of its existing infrastructure, the railway industry requires train service optimization models with headway constraints for state-of-the-art distance-to-go signalling systems. To this end, this paper introduces an approach for assessing train path feasibility in ETCS Level 2, Moving Block, and Virtual Coupling, that...

It is indicated that the solder joint of the metal fibrous materials is a critical factor impacting the heat conduction. To reveal the mechanism by which solder joint sizes, solder joint skips, solder flux materials, and filling media affect the thermal conductivity of fibres, pore-scale numerical simulation is employed to study the thermal...

Automatic Train Operation (ATO) is a technology to support or automate train driving for increasing service punctuality, energy efficiency and rail infrastructure capacity. Conflict-free train path planning is crucial to the effective deployment of ATO, which allows ATO-equipped trains to operate according to schedule with different train...

The barrel section of the novel MIP Timing Detector (MTD) will be constructed as part of the upgrade of the CMS experiment to provide a time resolution for single charged tracks in the range of 30-60 ps using LYSO:Ce crystal arrays read out with Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs). A major challenge for the operation of such a detector is the...

The Dutch railway transport system is a system of systems and also a sociotechnical system that will migrate to a radio-based signalling standard ERTMS (European Rail Traffic Management System). ERTMS will influence the train drivers and dispatchers the most, especially due to the introduction of the signalling and control element of ERTMS: the...

Moving block signalling promises a significant reduction of the infrastructure occupation compared to a fixed block system, such as NS’54/ATB. This is mainly caused by a strong reduction of the approach and running time. However, to assess the capacity gains track occupation data, such as blocking times are needed. ETCS L3 Moving Block is still...

The effect of doping in Si3N4 membranes on the secondary electron yield is investigated using Monte Carlo simulations of the electron-matter interactions. The effect of the concentration and the distribution of the doping in silicon rich silicon nitride membranes is studied by using the energy loss function as obtained from ab initio density...

This article aims to realize event-triggered constrained consensus tracking for high-order nonlinear multiagent networks subject to full-state constraints. The main challenge of achieving such goals lies in the fact that the standard designs [e.g., backstepping, event-triggered control, and barrier Lyapunov functions (BLFs)] successfully...

Automatic Train Operation (ATO) is well-known in urban railways and gets increasing interest from mainline railways at present to improve capacity and punctuality. A main function of ATO is the train trajectory generation that specifies the speed profile over the given running route considering the timetable and the characteristics of the...

The number of operational rail corridors equipped with ERTMS is increasing throughout Europe. The implementation of this critical safety system is planned to take several decades. However, ERTMS is a complex system that evolves continuously increasing the risk of using outdated parts and components. Therefore, adaptability is required for an...

In the 2020 timetable the Dutch legacy signalling and automatic train protection systems (ATB/NS’54) are operating at maximum capacity in the busiest parts of the network. With future expansions of services in mind, the capacity provided by the legacy systems could be considered insufficient. The planned implementation of the ERTMS/ETCS Level 2...

Railways are facing the challenge to simultaneously increase the capacity and the operational performance of their network. Automatic train operation (ATO) can be one of the technologies to increase the capacity of the railway network. The specifications for ATO over the European Train Control System (ETCS) automatic train protection system have...

Block signalling and Automatic Train Protection are two of the main railway safety systems to control the risk of train accidents. The combination of the existing Dutch block signalling system NS’54 and ATP-system ATB-EG is functioning well, but has some drawbacks. The systems have been designed over 60 years ago with proven technology of that...

Event-Triggered control (ETC) implementations have been proposed to overcome the inefficiencies of periodic (time-triggered) controller designs, namely the over-exploitation of the computing and communication infrastructure. However, the potential of aperiodic Event-Triggered techniques to reuse the freed bandwidth, and to reduce energy...

Energy constraint long-range wireless sensor/actuator-based solutions are theoretically the perfect choice to support the next generation of city-scale cyber-physical systems. Traditional systems adopt periodic control which increases network congestion and actuations while burdens the energy consumption. Recent control theory studies...

Photodetectors with excellent time resolution are becoming increasingly important in many applications in medicine, high energy- and nuclear physics applications, biology, and material science. Silicon photomultipliers (SiPM) are a novel class of solid-state photodetectors with good timing properties. While the time resolution of analog SiPMs...

We present a 4 X 4 array of digital silicon photomultipliers (D-SiPMs) capable of timestamping up to 48 photons per D-SiPM and we show the advantage of generating multiple timestamps in the context of positron emission tomography (PET). The D-SiPMs have a pitch of 800 ?m and comprise 416 pixels each; the timing resolution achieved by the SiPMs...

This paper evaluates the capacity consumption on a Dutch railway line both under scheduled and disturbed traffic conditions. For the scheduled condition the standard UIC compression method is used, while the computation of capacity consumption under disturbed conditions requires multiple simulation runs via a Monte Carlo simulation set up. For...

In this research a comparison has been made between on one side the Dutch signalling system with ATB-EG train protection and on the other side the European signalling system ETCS Level 2. The minimum feasible headway times at bottlenecks for both systems have been compared. A selection has been made of the 22 most relevant train sequences on six...
