Abstract

REPOINT Light track switch is a newly devised track switch which is under development. The switch is designed to enhance the reliability of the railway network by implementing closed loop control concept and by introducing actuator redundancy in the switch design. In the present stage of the research, the performance of the designed controller is presented with the experimental data in the laboratory environment. After successful experiments and tests, the full-scale demonstrator of the switch will be deployed to the railway network.
