Abstract
To accomplish safe, accessible and effective travel by train, a well-functioning passenger information system is required. This thesis aims at providing a technical solution for a system able to indicate the position of arriving trains at the platform. This will be achieved with the help of receded LED lighting within the inner marking of the safety zone. The lighting system will also give warning to waiting passengers of passing trains. Existing theory on the subject of passenger behaviour in a platform environment is reviewed and analysed. Relevant technical theory in the areas of lighting, logic control systems. Relevant parts of the rail- and train system is also reviewed and explained.

Relevant parts of the rail- and train system is also reviewed and explained.
Through case studies on three train stations in southern Sweden, a sufficient level of information to be given by the system has been identified. This has been done in regards of passenger behaviour and the accuracy of train stop position. Tests of key aspects of the system and its components have been conducted and the results are first presented then later discussed from a theoretical point of view. A technical solution is suggested, explained and discussed. (Less)
