Realtime Interactive Visualization for Driverless Trains

Nose AG

Stadler, a big Swiss train manufacturer has recently started to develop its own Communication-Based Train Control System (CBTC). The control of the driverless trains is done by external control- and safety systems on-board the train and on wayside.

Vision 11 has created a visualization for the presentation and demonstration of the system at Innotrans 2018, the largest trade fair in the train industry. The trains are animated and controlled by their positions calculated in real time via an interface directly from the CBTC system to Unity. As an additional feature, a motion control sensor was used. Visitors were able to control the camera by hand gestures inside the driver's cabin.

A total of four trains were visualized in real time
