In this work, we propose a broad-band free space optical (FSO) wireless communications system for high-speed trains. The system consists of optical transceivers positioned outside the train and along the railway track. The train receivers are in the coverage area of base stations positioned along the railway track to ensure continuous link availability. In this paper, we present modelling of two cases for over-ground and underground train systems before embarking to practically implement the system in our research laboratory. Also discussed is the protocol for the data distribution along the track as well as the initial experimental demonstration of the proposed link.

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)
Additional Information: Railway Network Young Professionals best paper seminar on sustainable, economical and safe solutions. This seminar was held on 5th October 2010 at the Medical Society of London. The seminar was a unique opportunity for young railway engineers to present a paper to their peers who explore the subjects of sustainability, economics and safe solutions in railways. The authors presentations were filmed for IET.tv on the evening and the winner chosen by the panel of Judges.
