SMART2-Advanced integrated obstacle and track intrusion detection system for smart automation of rail transport

SMART2 objective is to develop, implement and evaluate a holistic system for Obstacle Detection and Track Intrusion Detection (OD&TID) consisting of on-board, trackside and drone-based OD&TID systems, interfacing with central Decision Support System (DSS) unit. Holistic approach to autonomous obstacle detection for railways would enable increased detection area including areas behind a curve, slope, tunnels and other elements blocking the train’s view on the rail tracks, in addition to a long-range straight rail-tracks OD.

IAT is SMART2 project coordinator and the partner responsible for software for on-board and drone-based Obstacle Detection and Track Intrusion Detection (OD&TID)

This project has received funding from the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 881784.
