Making future rails scalable – virtualization approaches for a computing platform in vehicle control systems
What does the future of rails look like?
Developments like autonomous driving are rapidly gaining in importance. Rail vehicles and their control systems have to meet growing technological requirements while also being prepared for future ones. The only solution is maximum scalability. One promising approach is for control systems and infrastructure to share the same resources in a virtual form. Concepts like the virtual machine or container virtualization offer specific implementations. As part of a project on model-based product line engineering (MBPLE), Codewerk conducted an investigation into which manufacturers represented on the market are offering the best solutions.
