Subway Train Location Overlay System

The objective of this project is to support the efforts of Edge Velocity and the Massachusetts Bay transit Authority (MBTA) to improve rail safety, security and communications for trains in subway environments. Edge Velocity will develop a subway train location overlay system that will accurately locate trains in subterranean environments. Off-the-shelf and legacy technologies will be used to develop secured proprietary technologies to meet the requirements to communicate train location. MBTA will provide the subway environment for testing this technology.
