Impact of Covid-19
Because of COVID-19, the governments of all nations proclaimed lockdowns and other restrictions. The mandated rail industry shutdown has affected railway manufacture, and demand for railway transit has also decreased. Furthermore, due to social distance conventions and other constraints, labour was in short supply, causing the production process to be delayed. Furthermore, the R&D for the autonomous train has been hampered due to a lack of experienced labour necessary for software development. As a result, the demand for the automated train braking technology was impacted. Furthermore, the raw materials and electrical components essential for the manufacture of the autonomous train braking system were unavailable, causing the entire process to be halted. The automated train braking system is a developing industry that was interrupted by COVID-19, but it is likely to restart in the post-pandemic era as demand for the product increases.

Braking is a mechanical process that is used to slow down a moving vehicle. In railroads, the braking system not only decreases the train's ongoing speed but also manages the speed at ideal levels of operation. When compared to other vehicle braking systems, the railway braking system is relatively sophisticated. The primary role of railway braking systems is to stop the train at a set place, the second is to maintain a low speed, and the third is for emergency braking. The compressed air locking system is used in the railway braking system. When the self-driving train approaches the station and contacts the first beacon through a fixed transponder station, the brake sends an order to the train. The on-board computer calculates the braking curve to allow the train to stop at the right place; when the train approaches the platform, the curve is revised numerous times to assure accuracy. Furthermore, emergency braking is offered as a protection in the event that the sensors fail and the train fails to stop.
Increasing demand for railway digitization, autonomous trains, safe and secure transportation systems have propelled the global autonomous train braking system market. However, system failures that result in accidents, the potential of a cyber-attack, and hefty initial investment and maintenance expenses stymie industry expansion. Furthermore, an increase in government investment in railway expansion, train travel, and an effective braking system might serve as a growth potential for the industry.
Some of the drivers driving the expansion of the autonomous train market over the previous decade have been improved energy efficiency, increased safety, and reduced costs. Furthermore, high-speed train mishaps and passenger injuries caused by door operations have resulted in approximately 1900 incidents in Europe alone. This was a serious issue, as this has been the primary region to greatly increase autonomous train deployment. The self-driving trains, dubbed Fluxing or Rejuvenation, will be powered by a railway operating system designed by Chinese experts. As a result, all of these advancements in driverless trains will propel the market for autonomous train braking systems to new s.
