Abstract:

A data model and the power requirements for freight train monitoring and brake control are established as a framework fortechnology assessment. Transmission systems employing on-boardand external transmission media are examined. Conventional two-conductor transmission lines have much to offer in simplicity, ruggedness and reliability. Consequently, their weak point, theinter-car connector, has been examined in some detail. Noconnectors were found which fully met a set of requirementsdefining the ideal connector; however, a number of potentiallyuseful connector techniques were identified in other applicationsand warrant further consideration. Fibre optics have promise asan interference-free communications medium if combined with anelectric line for power transmission. Four schemes employingradio were examined. Of these, only a system based on atransponder at each car warrant further developemnt.
