Lightweight Crashworthy Train Cab

Stand number: 32


The DE-LIGHT cab is a technology demonstrator for a lightweight, crashworthy rail vehicle driver’s cab. It employs advanced sandwich material technology for the main cab structure and crash energy absorption devices. By focussing on affordable materials and by combining them in a novel, highly integrated fashion, the cab is able to simultaneously exploit the lightweighting and energy absorption benefits of these materials whilst providing savings in assembly, outfitting and operational costs. . At the exhibition, visitors will be presented with the 1/8 scale model of the DE-Light cab.
