InnoTrans 2018 in Berlin/Germany
From 18th to 21st of September 2018, Safe4RAIL took part in the InnoTrans 2018 fair, where Safe4RAIL's demonstrator was presented for the first time to the public.
The core objective of Safe4RAIL is to provide a platform able to integrate safety-critical and non-critical train functions into one common converged platform for communication and computation. In the project, a proof-of-concept for this common Integrated Modular Platform has been developed resulting in a demonstrator. In detail, this demonstrator focuses on the following aspects:
- Communication: A tight control of network end-to-end latency regardless of network load and a new network topology, which results in less expensive components and a safe communication with fewer (but redundant) components.
- Computation platform: A framework that facilitates modular integration of applications and enables interoperability in order to open a new way of linkage different platforms, devices and (operating) systems.
