CERTIFIABLE LOCALISATION UNIT WITH GNSS IN THE RAILWAY ENVIRONMENT

Project description

Satellites to keep Europe’s railways on track

The Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) is a constellation of satellites providing signals from space that transmit positioning and timing data to receivers that use this data to determine location. For the European railway network, GNSS could pave the way for improved localisation performance. The EU-funded CLUG project will assess the feasibility of a failsafe on-board multi-sensor localisation unit using GNSS, track maps and a minimal number of reference points. It will also review the use of an on-board continuous localisation system that provides information on location, speed and other dynamics of the train. Bringing together railway companies, railway signalling industries, navigation specialists, a research institute and a certification expert, the project will aim to future-proof the development of train digitalisation and automation.
