The STARS consortium was founded to develop and manufacture radar based safety systems for railways. It is composed of Ingegneria Dei Sistemi, a leading international company in the field of radar based systems, and Intecs, which has 20 years’ experience of delivering railway safety products.
In addition to installing systems on the line between Rome and Naples, as well as in the Lombardy region, for RFI (the Italian railway network) the STARS consortium is also active with other rail operators around the world.
The STARS solutions meet the very stringent safety requirements dictated by the CENELEC regulations for the sector, attaining the highest level of safety integrity, SIL4.
Sirio-LX is an automatic system to prevent trains from colliding with obstacles on the track at level crossings. It uses short range high resolution radar to detect objects that enter the area before or while the gates are closing and provides warning to approaching trains via the existing signaling system.
Sirio-OD is a radar-based system for the automatic detection of objects which have fallen on to railway tracks in high-risk zones such as overpasses, tunnel entrances and exits and zones prone to landslides. It has a fast reaction time, vital for high speed lines, and provides alerts to the signaling system to prevent rail accidents.
