Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2018228759A1] The invention relates to a method for operating a track-bound traffic system (1) which in a particularly efficient manner and at the same time with a comparably low degree of complexity allows the position of at least one vehicle end of a track-bound vehicle (50) to be ascertained. For this purpose, the method according to the invention is carried out such that a track-side device (30) transmits first information which directly or indirectly characterizes the location of the track-side device (30) and second information which directly or indirectly characterizes the travel direction (51) of a track-bound vehicle (50); the first and second information is received by the track-bound vehicle (50) at the location of the track-side device (30); and the position of at least one vehicle end of the track-bound vehicle (50) is ascertained by the track-bound vehicle (50) on the basis of the received first and second information.
