Making future rails scalable – virtualization approaches for a computing platform in vehicle control systems
What does the future of rails look like?
Developments such as autonomous driving are rapidly gaining importance. Rail vehicles and their control systems need to meet growing technical demands and be prepared for future ones. The only solution is maximum scalability. One promising approach is for control technology and infrastructure to share the same resources in virtual form. Concepts such as virtual machines or container virtualization offer specific implementations. As part of a project on Model-Based Product Line Engineering (MBPLE), Codewerk investigated which vendors on the market offer the best solutions.
