Sensors on trains are subject to extreme conditions. New algorithms ensure that the accuracy of the sensors remains optimal at all times.
A typical example is when a train enters a tunnel from a cold environment.This results in a very high temperature shock, which in turn influences the accuracy of measurements.
We have developed algorithms together with Flanders make which virtually eliminate sensitivity towards this transitions
The insights are used for the mechatronics solution.
In the Adsens project, we developed a methodology for the design of adaptive sensors. In that way, the reliability of sensor measurements is increased.
