An anti-lock braking system (ABS) is a safety anti-skid braking system used on aircraft and on land vehicles, such as cars, motorcycles, trucks and buses.
BSI Group, also known as the British Standards Institution (BSI), is the national standards body of the United Kingdom.
Deutsche Bahn AG (abbreviated as DB, DB AG or DBAG) is a German railway company.
Faiveley Transport, formerly Faiveley, is an international manufacturer and supplier of equipment for the railway industry founded in 1919.
Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane S.p.A. (previously Ferrovie dello Stato, FS) (in English Italian State Railways) is a state-owned holding company that manages infrastructure and services on the Italian rail network.
Friction is the force resisting the relative motion of solid surfaces, fluid layers, and material elements sliding against each other.
The UIC (Union Internationale des Chemins de fer) or International Union of Railways is an international rail transport industry body.
Knorr-Bremse ("Bremse" meaning brake) is a manufacturer of braking systems for rail and commercial vehicles that has operated in the field for over 110 years.
A locomotive or engine is a rail transport vehicle that provides the motive power for a train.
Martensite, named after the German metallurgist Adolf Martens (1850–1914), most commonly refers to a very hard form of steel crystalline structure, but it can also refer to any crystal structure that is formed by diffusionless transformation.
A multiple-unit train or simply multiple unit (MU) is a self-propelled train composed of one or more carriages joined together, which when coupled to another multiple unit can be controlled by a single driver.
Resonate Group Limited is a British software, technology and services company.
Sand is a naturally occurring granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles.
A sandbox is a container on most locomotives, multiple units and trams that holds sand, which is dropped on the rail in front of the driving wheels in wet and slippery conditions and on steep grades to improve traction.
A signal passed at danger (SPAD) in railway terminology of many countries, including Australia and the UK (where it is also known as either a SPAD or SPAR), occurs when a train passes a stop signal without authority to do so.
Slippery rail or low railhead adhesion, is a condition of railways (railroads) where contamination of the railhead causes trains to experience less adhesion (grip).
A traction control system (TCS), also known as ASR (from lit), is typically (but not necessarily) a secondary function of the electronic stability control (ESC) on production motor vehicles, designed to prevent loss of traction of driven road wheels.
Wabtec Corporation (derived from Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies Corporation) is an American company formed by the merger of the Westinghouse Air Brake Company (WABCO) and MotivePower Industries Corporation in 1999.
