Background & policy context: 

For the European railway, the dream of creating a system with all types of functionalities in a common platform is currently beyond reach. The EU-funded CONNECTA-2 project is working to change the status quo. It will focus on enhancing wireless technologies for the train control and management system – the brain of the train – integrating safety functions in the communication network and implementing a functional distribution framework for integrating appropriate safety levels. The project is also developing a simulation framework to virtualise the testing process and easily introduce new train functions. Integrating train functions in a centralised platform will help optimise safety and efficiency, while reducing operational costs.

Objectives: 

Continuation project of CONNECTA (GA 730539) which targets the implementation and deployment in two laboratory demonstrators (for regional and urban segments) of the following technologies:

  • Wireless TCMS, including wireless train backbone and wireless consist network
  • NG-TCN including high safe (SIL4) communication networks to support the drive-by-data concept, including brake-by-wire.
  • Functional Open Coupling (FOC)
  • Functional Distribution Framework (FDF) instantiated with two different approaches (modified AUTOSAR and self-implemented on top of specific operating system), together with relevant application profiles
  • The virtual certification simulation framework, with hardware-in-the-loop and remote connectivity to subsystems

The goal is to reach TRL5 in most developments.
