TU Darmstadt, Germany / Internship / May 2013 – June 2013Took part in a two-day workshop to create interaction concepts for the security of railway linemen. The assignment was part of a larger project – the Automatic Track Warning System (ATWS) – to improve the safety of railway trackside workers across Europe. The system being developed contains a track-side train presence alert device (TPAD), which is able to sense an approaching train without interfering with the signalling system. It consists of wireless mobile terminals (MTs) to inform the workers about possible approaching trains and/or other events that could put them at risk. The team worked on two modules – creating alarm concepts for the workers and improving the interface of the software to test the alarm sequences. The team worked in collaboration with Kathrin Ballweg, a Masters student at TU Darmstadt.
