Abstract

How can rail transport be made safer, more efficient and environmentally - friendly ? How must the trains of tomorrow be designed ? Rail transport researchers at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt - DLR) are addressing these questions. In the 'Next Generation Train' (NGT) project, researchers from nine DLR institutes are using an interdisciplinary approach to tackle the key questions of how the trains of the future can be safe, comfortable, environmentally-friendly and can significantly reduce travel times. The project started 2007 and is financed until the end of 2013 under supervision of the Heolmholtz Society.
