railwaysignalling.eu is a technical e-journal and web community. It was born and grows with the purpose to share high-tech knowledge about the most advanced and widespread signalling and train control European solutions. Young and experienced rail-signal engineers are welcome to participate to the group’s web community, by publishing their own technical articles about the main topics of railway signalling and train control European solution.

DAS: Driver Advisory System for energy saving and traffic management

The on-train system calculates an energy efficient speed profile to achieve the pre-planned or dynamically updated train timings, and generates detailed driver advice to follow the profile and achieve the timings. The control centre is responsible for conflict detection and calculation of new target train timings.

Measuring Requirements Testing

To validate the requirements, test plans are written that contain multiple test cases; each test case is based on one system state and tests some functions that is based on a related set of requirements.

A railway community of 3000 members!

This week end our railway community reached the target of 3000 members! railwaysignalling.eu is going to become one of the most influential railway communities on the web.

CBTC Standardization: Mixed Operation on Shared Lines in accordance with ERTMS/ETCS Standards

Is it possible a CBTC standardization in accordance with ERTMS/ETCS ? Provisions have been made to plan for the migration from CBTC systems, to ETCS Level 3

Requirements Management for the development of Safety Critical Systems

Requirements Management is concerned with understanding Customer goals, identifying and specifying the needs of Users and Stakeholders and the transformation of these needs into functions and constraints enabling development of products and services.

Principles of Railway interlocking

In railway signalling, an interlocking (IXL) is a system composed by a set of signal apparatus that prevents trains from conflicting movements through only allowing trains to receive authority to proceed, when routes have been set, lock and detected in safe combinations.

What is a Train Control and Monitoring System (TCMS)?

A TCMS (Train Control and Monitoring System) is an on-board system built with the purpose to control and monitor a list of train equipment.

The Future of Rail Signalling: The Transition to ERTMS event

The event will cover the latest updates on the change to ERTMS, discussing potential issues and pitfalls that might occur with the changeover, and considering who is responsible for the transition.

CBTC events: London FOCUSED on CBTC in March 2015

Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) is a railway signaling system mostly used for metros and light railways. It makes use of the telecommunications between the train and track equipment for the traffic management and infrastructure control. London is going to host a series of highlight CBTC events in March 2015.
