The third volume describes the essential embedded subsystems to move the trains, to control them and to stop them safely. It includes traction technologies, electrical as well as autonomous, braking systems and compressed air production, on-board train monitoring and control systems, driving man-machine interface etc. It also includes a chapter concerning locomotives, considered as a versatile traction tool, accommodating all these embedded systems at their highest level of power and complexity.
Finally, an attempt is made to turn the reader's gaze to the future with articles written by the best specialists in research and innovation in the rolling stock domain. One of these articles is written by the rolling stock team of the European Shift2Rail joint initiative, the two others by American and Japanese researchers.
