Final Report - MODTRAIN (Innovative modular vehicle concepts for an integrated European railway system)

Project ID: 506652
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final report of the 'Innovative Modular Vehicle Concepts for an Integrated European Railway System' (MODTRAIN) project, which aimed to define and demonstrate the necessary functional, electrical and mechanical interfaces and validation procedures to deliver a range of interchangeable modules which will form the basis for the next generation of intercity trains and universal locomotives.

The report begins with some background on European rail transport policy and interoperability challenges and then explains the project's objectives and structure into sub-projects and areas of research. It then presents the concept and architecture of the research and later goes into detail about the work performed and the results obtained throughout the course of carious sub-projects.
