This White Paper profiles a ground-breaking project that is aiming to optimise train braking systems through a blended electro-magnetic braking approach to increase the capacity and reliability of the GB rail network. It highlights the challenges associated with realising predictable and optimised train braking systems, summarises the potential impact on the railway industry, provides a forecast of the potential benefits and specifies the solution to this problem currently being investigated by the project team.
