In conformity with the EU policy the project aims at the improvement of interoperability in cross-border railway traffic by development, construction and evaluation of a new driver's desk that will be the core of modular train for application throughout Europe. Optimisation of human-vehicle interaction regarding working conditions, traffic safety and implementation of extended future-oriented monitoring/control capabilities are envisaged. Main project objectives are measurable improvements relating to man-machine-interface (e.g. reduction in reaction time), the supply industry (e.g. reductions in manufacturing costs, reduced time-to-market) and the Railways (e.g. reduced Life-Cycle costs). A multidisciplinary specification process will ensure the application of latest scientific knowledge’s. The evaluated specifications of desk concept (realised and evaluated as hardware mock-up) will serve as input document for future EU standard.
