Safety systems for rolling stock

Safety systems for rolling stock provide additional level of protection for passengers and cargo in railway vehicles, as well as other participants in traffic. Safety systems are designed around the principle of checking the driver's alertness and initiating automatic activities in case the driver's reaction is missing. ATP system, INDUSI based, allerts the driver or automatically brakes the vehicle, depending on the information about vehicle speed, collected during the passage by the signals on railway tracks. Dead man's system (SIFA) controls the drivers alertness through constant periodical tasks which the driver has to perform, and if the driver fails to do so, warns the driver and in the end automatically stops the vehicle.
