EU Funding Programme

Implementing new technologies for the TCMS

The Action should implement two laboratory demonstrators, one for mainline application and the other one for urban application. Both demonstrators should be the basis for their future validation and later deployment on real vehicles within the following and final stage of the MAAP. It is expected that the action will contribute to the implementation in a relevant environment, for mainline and urban
railway applications, of: the Functional Open Coupling to improve capacity, flexibility and to reduce LCC; the Drive-by-Data concept;  the Functional Distribution concept; Virtual homologation simulation framework; and the interoperability of the proposed wireless Ethernet Train Backbone.
