Predictable and Optimised Braking: Linear induction motors for reliable braking (SC04-POB-12)
This braking solution uses known technology in a novel way to improve train braking performance, even in low-adhesion conditions. The 'Zero Wheel Slip Linear Induction Motor' (Z-LIM) reduces dependence on friction between wheel and rail for traction and braking forces, with minimal changes to existing rolling stock and infrastructure.
