Advancing the next generation of train communication networks
For the European railway, the dream of creating a system with all types of functionalities in a common platform is currently beyond reach. The EU-funded CONNECTA-2 project is working to change the status quo. It will focus on enhancing wireless technologies for the train control and management system – the brain of the train – integrating safety functions in the communication network and implementing a functional distribution framework for integrating appropriate safety levels. The project is also developing a simulation framework to virtualise the testing process and easily introduce new train functions. Integrating train functions in a centralised platform will help optimise safety and efficiency, while reducing operational costs.
