ABSTRACT
The article focuses on various studies by researchers to create devices making railway travel safer. It is noted that the nation's first Positive Train Control system, which uses GPS technology to alert conductors when trains are going too fast has been launched by Southern California's Metrolink rail line in February 2014. It is stated that train operators will be able to track their location in real time through SafeRail, a satellite navigation system being made by the European Space Agency.
