The aim of this project is to fill the gap between ERTMS needs for safety critical applications and EGNSS services, through a characterisation of the railway environment and of GNSS performances assessment in that environment. The application of GNSS in ERTMS shall lead to significant economic benefits through reduction of trackside equipment, reduction of maintenance, increase of availability and performance.
The STARS Final Conference will be held on 27 November 2018, at the European GNSS Agency, in Prague. This event will be the opportunity to present and discuss the results achieved in the project and its contribution to the E-GNSS in Rail Signalling Roadmap.
Project will develop an universal approach to predict the achievable GNSS performance in a railway environment, especially for safety critical applications. Necessary evolutions of ETCS to include GNSS services will be determined together with quantification of economic benefits through reduction of costs.
