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 Mid-Term Conference of the STARS project will be held on Thursday, 15 June at the Cité de l’Espace (Space City) Toulouse (France). The event will start at 09:30 and end at 16:30, and will be followed by a joint guided tour of the Space City, at 17:00. The event (conference and guided tour) is free of charge but the registration is compulsory and the number of participants is limited. Please click here to register.
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.
