Measurement of the tilt angle on tilting trains

Through the application of tilting trains existing track can be traveled at higher speeds and consequently used more efficiently. Displacement sensors fitted to the front end of the vehicle determine the required degree of tilt of the coach body when taking bends in order to compensate for the "arising sideward acceleration". This data is passed to the control units in the following coaches which then tilt the coach bodies appropriately. When taking a bend, the coach body on the vehicle is then tilted towards the inside of the bend with the aid of hydraulic cylinders.
