Our research and innovation action project Safe4RAIL-2 (Safe architecture for Robust distributed Application Integration in roLling stock 2) will look at ways of utilizing wireless (5G), interoperable, on-board communication as well as universal integration of the Train Control and Monitoring System (TCMS). In collaboration with its complementary action project CONNECTA-2 (826098), Safe4RAIL-2 aims to develop railway demonstrators where next-generation architectures and components for TCMS will be integrated. Another aspect of the project is to perform testing of the TCMS functions in a simulated environment. These test methods alleviate field-testing which would be costly to undertake.
The results from Safe4RAIL-2 will define new train standards and pave the way for deterministic communications as well as secure and interoperable interconnections while increasing efficiency and safety of the TCMS.
