MAke RAil The HOpe for protecting Nature 2 future OPERATION


LTD simulations report

D3.1 covers the simulations of different train families having different train length/hauled mass versus the “technology” implemented. For technology, it is not only meant the characteristic of GSM-R communication, but also the brake position, the number of TU and the occurrence of two axle wagons. It is the basis from which the two technical demonstrators are chosen.

GSM-R or LTE radio, Design solution

GSM-R or LTE radio, Design solution, based on tests results of previous and ongoing projects and on Bombardier TU architecture. From the best trains configurations adapted to the market involving TU and DPS, taking into account the characteristics of the locomotives of the CFM partners a GSM-R or LTE radio solution is designed to be integrated in the TU and DPS to safely transfer all necessary orders and information (to and from) in nominal mode and degraded mode in all operational situations that may be encountered in the network.

Test demonstrators with DPS, LTD simulations report

D3.3 covers the specific simulations performed for the test demonstrators with DPS, according to the chosen train layout, the specific track (in terms of gradient) and the operative testing conditions.

Integrated system, Safety report

Provides the results coming from the safety activities performed during the WP2. They include the planning of the activities performed for safety demonstration (Safety plan), the records of all the safety-relevant information (Hazard log), the Preliminary Risk analysis on the integrated system, the safety analysis of the Radio communication, and the verification activities on the train dynamic simulations.

TrainDy, Sensitivity analysis report

Explains the methodology followed to execute a sensitivity analysis with TrainDy and the way the “relative approach” is applied considering the track. It aims to reduce the number of parameters that have to be characterized statistically and to couple the position of the maximum LCF with the track. It results in a list of parameters and in a methodology to couple the position of maximum LCF with the occurrence of a track curve

Dissemination, exploitation and communication report

It will describe effective dissemination and communication actions achieved. It will give indications of the major points of Stakeholders’ interest with the possible roadmap. It provides the steps to be followed for implementation and exploitation of M2O results in collaboration with S2R-CFM-IP5-01-2018 partners

Integrated Quality and Risk plan

Defines the quality procedures and the risk management plan. Aims at ensuring a smooth running of M2O Project. It describes the activities and tools to track and monitor the progress and actions related to identified risks.

GSM-R or LTE radio, Integration (with TU and DPS) report

The integration concept and the result of Hardware and Software integration is here reported. The report will cover communication characteristics on train and on radio link for test demonstrator.

Test demonstrators with DPS, Specific application Safety case

D3.2 addresses the actual implementation of safety requirements by the tests Demonstrators and underlining the needs of further verification and validation activities toward a full Specific Application Safety Case.

Test demonstrators with DPS, Safety assessment report

D4.1 applies to the test demonstrators, to provide the conclusions of the Independent Safety Assessment. It fixes the status of compliance and recommendations.
