The project EWS Transport (Early Warning System for Transportation Lines) analyses the potential of earthquake early warning for railway systems. The study focuses on rapidly producing an alert map during an ongoing earthquake as well as providing a shake map immediately after the strong-motion phase. Potential hazards for the railway system are estimated on the basis of the alert map. After the earthquake potential damages to the railway infrastructure are calculated based on the shake map. A flexible standard-based architecture is specified in EWS Transport to ensure future reusability of the design principles.
The project consortium consists of three partners. The consortium is lead by the Department of Railway Systems (ISE) of the University of Karlsruhe taking care of risk reduction while real-time seismology aspects are realized by the Geophysical Institute (GPI) of the University of Karlsruhe. This paper describes the information system realized for EWS Transport, which is the work of Fraunhofer IITB. The project has been funded by "Geotechnologien" a geoscientific research and development programme, supported by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) and the German Research Foundation (DFG).
