Project description

New communication platform keeps trains on track

The railway sector is constantly innovating, transforming traffic management and control systems. The EU-funded X2Rail-4 project will build on previous research on key technologies within the following Technology Demonstrators (TDs). It will develop railway line capacity increase by integrating and testing Obstacle Detection tools and environment sensors and will develop complete On-Board Train Integrity system prototypes applicable in both passengers and cargo trains with or without wired communication. Additionally, the project will design a communication platform for the management of communication and data exchange between different services. It will also develop a prototype offering a wireless system for data exchange between trackside equipment and signalling instruments with reduced maintenance costs and required cabling.
