Railways and Intelligent Transportation Systems
The backbone of transportation, our railways safety and reliability cannot be compromised. Safran accelerometers measure track vibration, ensuring their stability and integrity, while our Global navigation satellite system (GNSS): A general term describing any satellite constellation that provides positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) services on a global or regional basis. See also simulators test resilience in the face of denied GNSS signals. As Intelligent Transportation Systems are evolving, Safran solutions are there to answer their constantly changing needs.
Test & Measurement
Test and measurement applications are spread out in various sectors – automotive, railways, defense and aerospace. Safran’s MicroElectroMechanical System. See also vibration sensor SI1000 is designed for test and measurement applications.
Precise Train Positioning
Reporting the position of every train is an extremely important task, and leads to a number of advantages.
Bogie Monitoring System
Track irregularities are the main causes of the vibration of high-speed trains and thus should be carefully monitored to maintain the ride quality of the trains.
High speed train tilt control systems are aimed to increase the operational speed of the trains on curving rail lines.
Active Suspension System
An active, computer-monitored, suspension system relies heavily on accurate readings provided by highly accurate accelerometers. This is where Safran MEMS accelerometers are applied.
