2 Testing in maintenance phase of the project Sensible parameters to be tested for ERTMS Modern technologies: diagnostic vehicles Application in Funded Projects Agenda

3 CENELEC EN The context (1/2) Operation and Maintenance 11 System Acceptance System Acceptance 10 De-commissioning and Disposal 14 Preference Monitoring Preference Monitoring 12 Modification and Retrofit Modification and Retrofit 13 Re-apply Lifecycle  Maintenance is part of the process for signalling applications, with SIL4 safety integrity level.  Phase 11 of the product life cycle is called “Operation and Maintenance”.  Phase 11 ensures the operation, maintenance and logistic support in order to maintain the system compliance to the RAMS requirements. This is the phase where “mobile diagnostic” is required.

4 CENELEC EN The context (2/2)  The collection of statistical data regarding functional and RAMS performances before and during the revenue service of the trackside is useful to optimize the maintenance process.  Diagnostic data are evaluated and used for planning the consequent maintenance actions.

6 Maintenance for ERTMS constituents ERTMS ERTMS - Level 1 TRACKSIDE CONSTITUENTS ERTMS - Level 2 TRACKSIDE CONSTITUENTS LEULEU BALISEBALISEBALISEBALISE GSM - R Maintenance depends on the diagnostic subsystem of the supplier. Maintenance (could be) quite automatic. Maintenance depending on the Local verification of each balise. Maintenance cannot be automatic. Maintenance depending on the diagnostic subsystem of the supplier at transmission level; at the receiving level it depends on the local verification, for each positioning on the track. Maintenance cannot be completly automatic.

8 Testing in maintenance phase of the project Sensible parameters to be tested for ERTMS Modern technologies: diagnostic vehicles Application in Funded Projects Agenda

9 Diagnostic Vehicle “CAR ON TEchnology”  The vehicle has been conceived together with RFI for the requirements of diagnostic systems. Design and development of the diagnostic systems and railway vehicle have been completely implemented in MER MEC facilities.  Vehicle is used for trend analysis, predictive maintenance planning, trackside test commissioning.  Vehicle Informations: Rank B Clearance UIC Track gauge 1435 mm Maximum speed 120 Km/h

12 GSM-R/GPRS Diagnostic System: application interfaces

13  Correct positioning on the track  Correct distance between balises within the same Balise Group (BG)  Correct distance between BGs  Functional coherence and consistency of the received telegram to the expected one for that balise  Balise Status Silent balise ‘Default Balise’ message, in order to detect a LEU failure or a break on the connection cable ‘Default LEU’ message, in order to verify the correct functioning of the LEU  Number of received telegrams (air-gap index) Balise Diagnostic: logical parameters measurement

14  Radio Contact Diagram Contact length Axial symmetry Compliance with the expected patterns  Central frequency value  FSK frequency deviation of modulation Balise Diagnostic: physical parameters measurement

15 Italian experience  Pre-operational phase carried out during 2010  Full operation started in January 2011  Operation Program main outcomes: 6 complete measuring campaigns (six months timeframe) on the Italian Railway Track, about Km km of lines inspected eurobalises checked The following information have been kindly provided from Rete Ferroviaria Italiana The service performed by the technological CARONTE allows continuous monitoring of the railway lines and, through the detection of faults, provides indications for corrective maintenance of the equipment of wayside and then for Certification in exercise of the lines. The objective in the medium term is the study of evolution of the physical parameters of the balise before they reach the fault condition in order to contribute maintaining the efficiency of the equipment of wayside system mainly in terms of predictive maintenance.

16 Future applications of ERTMS testing systems New CAR-ON-Technology vehicle for RFI in 2014 New Generation of diagnostics Systems for High-Speed Lines Supply for diagnostic vehicle for SBB

17 Testing in maintenance phase of the project Sensible parameters to be tested for ERTMS Modern technologies: diagnostic vehicles Application in Funded Projects Agenda

18 Application in Funded Projects The described technologies will be used in 2 funded projects SHIFT 2 RAIL TEN-TTEN-T

19 SHIFT 2 RAIL is the first joint R&D proposal of European Railway Industry, aiming at developing products with a fast market follow up; SHIFT 2 RAIL encompasses research, innovation and demonstration activities in all aspects of the rail system, amounting to nearly €1 Billion, co-financed by the EU and the private sector under the Horizon2020 budget across the 7 year lifespan of the initiative (estimated ); Position of MERMEC Group  SHIFT²RAIL MoU founder signatory  Participation to IP2, IP3, IP5.  From Jan 2014 participation to the Steering Committee Position of MERMEC Group  SHIFT²RAIL MoU founder signatory  Participation to IP2, IP3, IP5.  From Jan 2014 participation to the Steering Committee  IP1 / Energy & Mass Efficient Technologies for High Capacity Green Trains  IP2 / Advance Traffic Management & Control Systems for the Improvement of Mainline & Urban Rail Capacity & Resilience Zero on-site testing: the activity is devoted to laboratory tests, including the full simulation of railway line condition, to minimize ERTMS field tests campaigns before to place the line in service  IP3 / The Cost efficient - High Capacity Green Infrastructure  IP4 / The IT Solutions for a Seamless Attractive Railway Transport System  IP5 / The Technologies for Sustainable & Attractive European Freight Transport
