Research Projects

RailTech can help you initiate and establish a research project - we will help you find the right resources at DTU


Rail projects at DTU

Across the departments at DTU several research projects are dedicated to different aspects of rail technology. Among them are:

  • EASIER - DTU Management creates models where the customer is the railroad's focus, therefore it becomes easier, more accessible and secure to jump on the train.
  • 5GRAIL - DTU Photonics participates in the project regarding the future traffic control technology FRMCS. The main organisation of railroads; UIC is coordinator.
  • SORTED Mobility - The future train system is not only driverless, but as well autonomous which creates more resilience and demand. DTU Management is part of the project.
  • Roads2Rails - Danish Technological Institute and DTU Civil Engineering as main research center with partners from Banedanmark (Rail Net Denmark), Atkins Denmark and Arkil

  • Intelliswitch - headed by DTU Wind and with participation from DTU Electrical Engineering, DTU Mechanical Engineering, DTU Compute, - and with Banedanmark (Rail Net Denmark) as an important partner

  • IPTOP - headed by DTU Transport and with participation from DTU Management and DTU Compute - also with important participation from partners Banedanmark (Rail Net Denmark), DSB, Movia, Rapidis, Trafikstyrelsen (the Danish Transport and Construction Agency)

  • RobustRails - headed by DTU Management and with participation from DTU Compute, DTU Fotonik and DTU Transport
