On December 9, 2021, in Warsaw, Ignacy Góra, the President of the Office of Rail Transport, presented the awards and distinctions during the 5th Safety Culture Gala. In the 5th edition of the competition, the award was given to, among others Faculty of Civil and Transport Engineering of the Poznan University of Technology and Jakub Holcman for the thesis "Improving the level of safety at railroad crossings with the use of radar occupancy system" carried out under the supervision of prof. Wojciech Sawczuk.
The diploma thesis presents a comprehensive design for the development of an automatic level crossing system with a radar occupancy system for the crossing area for a category B, i.e. equipped with automatic gates. The solution described in the master thesis will enable the exit of vehicles from the crossing area after the automatic gates were lowered.
