Advanced Signalling, Automation and Communication System (IP2 and IP5) – Prototyping the future by means of capacity increase, autonomy and flexible communication

Project description

Advanced traffic management and control for railways

Key technological advancements are needed to keep pace with the growing railway industry and increasing passenger numbers. The EU-funded X2Rail-3 project aims to develop technologies that foster innovations in areas that include railway signalling systems, testing methodologies and an adaptable railway communication system to overcome the shortcomings of current communication systems. The project will also study virtual coupling, a new concept that will allow trains to run much closer to one another and dynamically modify their own composition on the move. The results will further the use of adaptable and intelligent traffic management and control systems in railways.
