As part of the transport reform, Deutsche Bahn (national German railway company) is continuously expanding and renewing the rail network in order to shift more traffic from road to rail.
According to the IPCC (The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), temperatures are continuing to rise which is leading to longer dry periods and an increase in heavy hits of rainfall that fall in a short space of time.
After providing the real-time data flow of our X-band radar in Aachen, the ISRV project (Intelligent Heavy Rainfall-Related Flood Risk Warning in the Transport Sector) now has access to high-resolution and timely data regarding precipitation fields and intensities over Aachen and the surrounding area.
