  • Depot or yard management (part of operating system).
  • Detection at crossings.
  • Detection of passage.
  • Train configuration: Automatic adjustment of washing facilities according to guage and length of trains, automatic flow adjustment at depot's petrol station.
  • Control of correct vehicle position before being authorised to open the doors (platform screen doors, assistance equipment for disabled access).
  • Adjustments of vehicle's step height according quay's height.
  • Coaches / wagons identification (AVI Automatic Vehicle Identification).
