Transport of people and goods is a fundamental need for the global society and economy as it allows citizens to enjoy the freedom to travel and enables transportation of goods within and across international markets. In this context, transport is one of the fundamental pillars for the European society and economy allowing Europe to provide connectivity between its different regions and remain fully and competitively integrated with the rest of the world and the world economy. Transportation is a key infrastructure for European citizens not only to improve their every day’s quality of life, but also to enable economic growth, job creation and overall prosperity. The European railway industry evaluated how other transportation industries have addressed the development of new technologies and which architectural concepts have been applied. This led to a revaluation for the rail industry providing significant and fast progress in safety, security and in the integration of new functions.

Safe4Rail Drive by Data

The SAFE4RAIL-3 and CONNECTA-3 projects are driving the development of the next generation network for Train Control and Monitoring Systems (TCMS). This network will enable all control parameters of the TCMS subsystems to be transmitted digitally over an electronic network, eliminating the need for conventional railway lines. This not only reduces costs, but also maintains the required level of ...
