Deutsche Bahn Netz in Germany will replace mechanical train stops on the Berlin S-Bahn network as part of an automatic train protection system.

The first part of the network to be upgraded will be Route S1 between Frohnau and Schönholz.

The railways are expected to continue 19 stages of work, where batches of rolling stock will be fitted with balise readers, on-board processors and cab displays.

Any interlockings will be designed to work with the speed supervision equipment although the existing electronic interlockings need to be replaced.
