Artificial intelligence in rail applications – new attack vectors and protection mechanisms

The importance of artificial intelligence is constantly increasing in all areas of our lives. This also applies to safety-relevant rail applications. However, the use of AI in rail applications harbors potential safety problems. In their technical article in the May issue of ETR, Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Lars Schnieder and Jan Malte Hilgefort discuss these safety problems and how they, in turn, can be protected by artificial intelligence. They also discuss the contribution AI can make to increasing security against unauthorized access by third parties.

In their article, Schnieder and Hilgefort provide a comprehensive overview of the most important protection mechanisms and attack vectors that the use of artificial intelligence in rail applications can bring.

We are happy to provide you with the full article.
