The aim is to research on technologies and architectures to allow new generation of train communication systems based on wireless transmission for train control and monitoring (TCMS), functions and Infotainment, CCTV applications, thus reducing or even completely eliminating onboard communication cables and simplifying the train coupling procedure.
The results will contribute to the increase of the operational reliability (up to 50% for Roll2Rail) and to the reduction of the life cycle costs (up to 40% for Roll2Rail). By the end of the project, the following specific achievements will be fulfilled: Radio communications technology assessment for railways (onboard, train-to-train and train-to-ground), to increase reliability and reduce life cycle costs; Development of standard high level resilient architectures and physical interfaces for the train wireless communication systems, to drive their deployment in real products in the future.
Rail-ROLL2Rail aims to develop key technologies and to remove identified blocking points for innovation in the field of railway vehicles as part of a longer term strategy to revolutionize the rolling stock of the future. The results will be further developed, leading to demonstration in real vehicles or relevant environments.
UNIFE, the European Rail Industry launched an European Rail Research and development project meeting. This project was selected by the European Commission in the call of the HORIZON 2020 Programme. Shift2Rail. Within Shift2Rail-ROLL2Rail aims to develop key technologies and to remove idientified blocking points for innovaton in the field of railway vehicles as part of a longer term strategy to revolutionise the rolling stock of the future.
At the end of the project all the results will be further developed, leading to demonstration in real vehicles or relevant environments feeding into IP1 of Shift2Rail. Moreover, this project will deliver a set of technical recommendations and proposals of standarisation.
