Objectives of research

Main objectives:

The project addresses the full range of preparations activities leading to full scale trial tests of the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) in a number of pilot sites to be located in France, Germany and Italy. The project activities are to be split into two main phases as follows: Phase 1 : 1. Completion of the users requirements specifications of the ERTMS-ETCS kernel , including functional, system and subsystem requirements and overall safety concept. 2. Specification of system functional, performance and interoperability tests. 3. Customization of the systems for the foreseen trial sites (on-board and track-side components) 4. Preparation of the file of common technical specifications for the call for tenders regarding the pilot installations for the trial sites. Phase 2 : Demonstration of the feasibility of the different ERTMS environment components - common kernel and specific and national modules and interfaces - through functional modelling of the system based on software and/or hardware simulation approaches.

Secondary objective:

To enable compliance with the interoperability objections for the trans-European rail network (Dir 91-440 and STI)

Demo Sites:

Demonstration sites on "SNCF, DB and FS" networks
