Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR ASCERTAINING AT LEAST ONE STATE OF A TRAIN
Abstract:
The invention relates to a system for ascertaining at least one state of a train (1) and preferably of a rail section (3) on which the train (1) is located. The system has a vibration generator (2) for generating at least one specifiable structure-borne noise output signal, and the system (20) has a vibration sensor (4) for detecting a structure-borne noise reflection signal. The system (20) has a controller (5) which forms a circuit with the vibration generator (2) and the vibration sensor (4), and the controller (5) is designed to compare the structure-born noise reflection signal with at least one comparison criterion in order to ascertain the at least one state of the train (1).
