The deployment of unique harmonised train command / control and telecommunication systems and the creation of trans-european traffic management facilities constitute crucial elements toward the achievement of a real integrated rail network.
The work foreseen herewith addresses the extension of the current developments, centred on the command/ control (ERTMS/ETCS) and telecommunication (GSM-R) systems, toward the traffic management layer at the high level.
This imply a supervisory management facility, built upon the different national traffic management systems, aimed at the control of railway traffic along major European rail corridors.
In addition, the core set-up should constitute the basis for the creation of an associated information infrastructure to support transport management activities, including customer value-added services for door-to-door transport.
The present study shall participate first to the completion and the consolidation of the Functional Requirement Specifications of those supervisory management facilities already worked out by the OPTIRAILS project under the Framework Programme N°4. Secondly, the study will define the System Requirement Specification of the new traffic management system including all sub-systems and interfaces.
