During the past decade, train Driver Advisory Systems (DAS) have been an emerging topic. Many projects have been started with the goal to increase punctuality and decrease energy consumption. We found that many systems provide too little information, e.g. only a speed advice, and thus do neither improve drivers’ skills nor their Situation Awareness (SA) of the traffic situation. In collaboration with train drivers, we developed key concepts for future DAS. This paper discusses today’s problems and principles to solve them. We explain how SA can be supported and how this can improve overall quality of train traffic.
