Technical objectives

  • Achieve a realistic characterization of the environment in terms of railway and GNSS infrastructure able to evaluate performances and properties of some fail-safe positioning components with respect to normal and specific failure conditions
  • Simplify the analysis of the pros/cons for the GNSS application according to the different line characteristics and market segment
  • Set-up of a geographical and distributed infrastructure able to verify and take advantage from the results of the existing laboratories
  • Reduce costs and improve efficiency for testing technologies and their evolution and for planning maintenance and replacement activities on the line
  • Performing tests of innovative products and services using up-to-date simulation environment in order to support new (type) approval processes or even a harmonised European approval process in the context of control, command and signalling systems
