Funds and financing

  • UNIONE EUROPEA: Fondo europeo di sviluppo regionale, PON IMPRESE E COMPETITIVITA 2014>20: Riaccendiamo lo sviluppo, Ministero dell Imprese e del Made in Italy

    The objective of the SIS-LR project is to identify an innovative solution that allows ERTMS systems to be implemented on regional lines with little traffic with low initial investment and operating costs, making them economically viable and competitive with road transport.

    The main results achieved by the project are:

    • New "Train Location" functions with the use of GNSS technology (GPS, Galileo, ...) and "Train Integrity" control, with the elimination of ground-based Train Detection systems (Track Circuits, Axle Counters, level crossing pedals) and physical train tracking buoys.
    • Ground-to-board communication over public LTE/5G networks via APNs, as an alternative to the proprietary GSM-R network.
    • Entity controllers with management capability in fault conditions or isolation from the IXL Central Computer, with "cybersecurity" functions for communication on public LTE/5G networks through APN networks, as an alternative to proprietary fibre-optic network.

    These results are the first application in the railway environment - with a safety objective (SIL 4) - of similar solutions used in other areas but with less stringent safety objectives, or postulated but so far not implemented.

    With the financial support of the European Union - ERDF, PON Enterprise and Competitiveness 2014-2020 for an amount exceeding EUR 500,000.00.
