UK Rail Network to use GPS ?
Date: Friday, February 11 @ 21:41:05 UTC

The BBC has reported today that the rail industry is investigating the use of satellite navigation technology to improve Britain's rail safety.

Key industry figures have been meeting to discuss whether sat-nav could be used widely on the UK's rail network.

Satellite navigation data could, in theory, feed back in real time the positions of every train and item of rolling stock on the network to an accuracy of metres, or even centimetres.

It could also tell controllers whether trains are running to timetable, and which services are running.
