The Train Protection and Warning System (TPWS) is a safety system implemented across Britain’s rail network. The system will automatically apply the train’s emergency brake if the train passes a red signal, or is over-speeding on the approach to a speed restriction, buffer stops or a red signal.
Lucid developed an interactive DVD that provides practical guidance to train drivers and signallers on all aspects of the system: how it works, why it was implemented and how to operate it correctly. The DVD combines video, animations and interactive exercises to provide a comprehensive and accurate understanding of TPWS.
No such training tool had been developed since the implementation of TPWS was completed in 2002. Lucid worked with an extensive team of technical experts, train operators and signallers to produce the DVD.
