CONtributing to Shift2Rail's NExt generation of high Capable and safe TCMS. PhAse 2.

Project description

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.
