The Rolling Stock Per­spec­tive sug­gests that the rail in­dus­try must look at ad­vances with au­ton­o­mous cars.

The Govern­ment doc­u­ment states: “The in­dus­try must look to the work be­ing done with au­ton­o­mous cars to see what lessons can be learned and ap­plied to the rail­way, which has a much more con­trolled en­vi­ron­ment than an open road.”

This was part of a chap­ter on the Dig­i­tal Rail­way, which claimed that dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies such as driver ad­vi­sory sys­tems, in-cab sig­nalling, traf­fic man­age­ment and au­to­matic train con­trol will “en­able pro­vi­sion of more ser­vices for pas­sen­gers and help se­cure per­for­mance and en­vi­ron­men­tal ben­e­fits”.
