Typical applications, like CBTC, include determining the train’s position on the track. The reader’s accurate positioning capability is used for precise calibration of the automatic train control systems, enabling high throughput and accurate stop locations. Other on-board applications include selective door opening, PSD ”Platform Screen Door”, wheelchair ramp control, automatic radio channel switching and automatic power switching in neutral zone passage and charging. Safety levels up to SIL4 can be supported.
