Recent developments in different types of technologies enabled the development of new performant systems that can successfully be employed for various applications and subsequent functions related to railway operations, including safety and security aspects. Functions such as real-time monitoring, tracking and tracing of railway vehicles can improve the overall rail system reliability and provide better harmonised traffic for freight and passenger trains. These would also contribute to the improvement of interoperability, by enabling the use of the captured data in real time. Furthermore, the potential benefits of GNSS applications in the rail sector are examined alongside past attempts and recent new rail research in relation to the implementation of a GNSS system for security purposes.
