The present paper gives an overview to an innovative approach of a vehicle autonomous positioning system for railways, providing cost-efficient position information for particularly safety related systems, especially for protection systems on non-equipped secondary lines. The idea is fixed in the project “DemoOrt” that consists of developing a platform with an onboard and vehicle autonomous technology which also integrates and uses availability as well as innovative technologies where as the main focus is on satellite based positioning e.g. GALILEO.
