Managing lateral train forces by control of Longitudinal force

This InfoZone addresses the relationship between longitudinal train forces and how they affect lateral train forces. In-train test methodologies and equipment that demonstrate the longitudinal/Lateral relation will be displayed and discussed, as well as how two train control technologies; Distributed Power, and Trip Optimizer Train Control System utilize the information an insight gained from use of this equipment to implement such control.
