This project has received funding from the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 730830.
Phase 1 – State of the Art
The Safe4RAIL project starts with an exploratory inventory of technology and solutions from the aerospace, automotive and railway domains with regards to system-level, embedded platform with networking, computing, functional distribution, safety and security analyses.
Phase 2 – Requirements and Technology Assessment
The traceability of requirements is a baseline essential for the knowledge transfer, future system development and system platform demonstration activities. The concepts and methodology for the design, configuration, integration, analysis, simulation and verification of subsystems are as essential as the set of principles, components, and networking capabilities enabling the definition of advanced integrated systems, so that they can be certified and commissioned by railway authorities.
Phase 3 – Proof of Concepts and SIL4 Brake Use Case
The outcome of the activities will be validated by means of proof-of-concept demonstrators. The proof-of-concepts show the viability of the defined networks and embedded platforms for “drive-by-data” systems to host SIL4 functions and have all properties required for the TCMS system certification. The Brake-by-Wire activities and design concepts for electronics brakeby- wire system as an exemplary SIL4 can be placed and hosted on the same Safe4RAIL TCMS platform.
