The TRANSIT project: Innovation towards train pass‑by noise source characterisation and separation tools
Railway transport produces less CO2 and consumes less energy than road and air transport modes; it also requires less space than road transport. However, noise and vibration (N&V) levels in the vicinity of railways are a major environmental challenge for the railway sector. In addition, a competitive railway transport system…
In this article for Global Railway Review, we discover how, in the work of the SILVARSTAR project, the development of auralisation and visualisation tools can be used to predict, and demonstrate, railway noise using virtual reality technology.
Marta Garcia, Technical Affairs Manager at UNIFE speaks about the forever developing digital rail transport industry within Europe, and therefore the necessity for cyber-security adaptations in order to maintain and secure a safe and resilient rail sector.
