Aside from the more well-known facts such as passenger information, European GNSS serves the rail sector in various other ways. From asset management to High and Low Density Command & Control Systems, the amount of initiatives in the world shows the consideration given to Rail and GNSS developments. GNSS enabled signalling applications provide increased safety and reduce costs of infrastructure management and operations compared to legacy signalling solutions.
