1 ERTMS and related research projects European Technology Research & Innovation Dennis Schut UIC Peter Gurnik UNIFE

2 Increase competitiveness of ERTMS The deployment of ERTMS is a priority For the first time, the Commission also stresses the need to support ERTMS outside European borders Strengthening of cooperation of key stakeholders on ERTMS Reinforcing the competitiveness and dynamism of the railway sector (interoperability issues) Improve the specification including new technologies

6 TEST OF ROLLING STOCK ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY FOR CROSS-DOMAIN INTEROPERABILITY EMC with BTM, GSM-T, track circuits and broadcasting services Train & infrastructure electromagnetic modeling Identification of worse-case interferers and noise by means of field testing and statistical data processing as well as Laboratory testing & TREND - TEST OF ROLLING STOCK ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY FOR CROSS-DOMAIN INTEROPERABILITY - FP7 - 01.11.2011 – 30.04.2014

7 Motivation: ETCS validation by means of lab testing GNSS positioning into ETCS level 3 EATS - ETCS ADVANCED TESTING AND SMART TRAIN POSITIONING SYSTEM - FP7 PROJECT - (01.20.2012 – 31.03.2016) EATS_LAB: On-board ETCS lab testing tools On-board ETCS model Fault injection in the interfaces Electromagnetic compatibility in the wireless interfaces EATS_STPS: Smart Train positioning System, train positioning by means of multi constellation GNSS and wireless communication technologies. -

8 3INSAT - TRAIN INTEGRATED SAFETY SATELLITE SYSTEM ESA PROJECT 2012 - 2014 Expected impact and objectives: Satellite-based train control system (new requirements for the evolution of the ERTMS) Reference architecture will be designed, developed and tested in a real scenario. Demonstrate that satellite assets can be incorporated in the ERTMS-ETCS train control system -

14 14 “New technologies can do much to help modernise Europe’s railways, while also reducing operational and infrastructure costs and creating new business opportunities for the European rail supply industry” Proposal for a Council Regulation establishing the SHIFT²RAIL Joint Undertaking, 16 December 2013

15 SHIFT²RAIL 14 March 2014: Political approval by the European Transport Council of a legislative regulation called SHIFT 2 RAIL to launch an ambitious new European Research & Innovation Programme that aims to:  Increase the competitiveness of the EU rail industry to help it retain world leadership  increase the attractiveness of rail transport. A public-private Joint Undertaking under Horizon 2020 starting in 2015 Budget of 920 Million Euros for 2014-2020, including 450 Million from the EU and 470 Million from the Industry After 3 years of intense work by the rail sector for the technical preparatory phase (coordinated by UNIFE) A historical decision for the rail sector all over Europe 15

16 S 2 R Preparatory phase: the 25 Founders and overall 115+ promoters 16

17 Innovation Programme 2 – ADVANCED TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL SYSTEMS 17 ADVANCED TRAFFIC MANAGEME NT AND CONTROL SYSTEMS Capacity and Efficiency Surge Smart Procurement & Testing Dependable Safe Signalling System STAKE AT EU LEVEL : Maintaining the dominance of ERTMS as a solution for railway signalling and control systems across the world, while extending synergies and interoperability with the urban and mass transit railway sectors and speeding up the time to market. CHALLENGE: Develop a new generation of signalling and control systems, building on current ERTMS, to enable intelligent traffic management with automatically driven trains and optimise capacity, reliability and minimise Life Cycle Costs.

18 The future ways of participating (*as proposed by the European Commission in its legislative proposal) Participation in future R&D activities Long-term funding for Founding and Associated Members  Members which will commit themselves to bring resources (financial resources, human resources and/or technical means) for the full duration of the project  Depending on their degree of involvement/contribution, these Members will be either:  Founding Members (8 companies already named in the Regulation Proposal)  or Associated Members (own contribution required shall be 2,5% of the Innovation Programme + selection through a competitive call) → Possibility for SMEs and research organisations to get together within a « consortium » in order to collectively become an Associated Member Regular open calls for proposals for shorter-term projects  A significant part of the budget will be devoted to regular open calls for proposals for each Innovation Programme  The objective is clearly to trigger the participation of SMEs and Research Institutes through better-targeted calls Regular open calls for tenders 18

19 H2020 1 st Call (proposal to be approved by EC) Transportation topics MG.2.1-2014 – Intelligent infrastructure  linked to IP2, IP3 and IP4 MG.2.2-2014 (1): Seamless multimodal travel  linked to IP4 MG2.2-2014 (2): Logistic services  linked to IP5 MG.2.3: New generation rail vehicles  linked to IP1 SHIFT²RAIL promoted proposals 19

20 Conclusions The current innovations are aiming to fulfill the vision described in the Transport White Paper; The innovations of NGTC and SHIFT 2 RAIL are following the specification improvements identified in the ERTMS Memorandum of Understanding (2012); SHIFT 2 RAIL under Horizon2020 provides the long term research strategy on step change innovation for the European Railway Sector.
