This proposal has been developed to tackle the two main challenges related to Traction systems and Adhesion highlighted in the Call text.
The traction sub-project will address these objectives as follows:
WP1 – KPI Quantification and Progress
The objective of this WP is to collect and report on the progress of development activities within Shift2Rail PINTA2. The progress will be reported based on the KPIs listed in Roll2Rail and further defined in Shift2Rail PINTA phase 1.
WP2 – Development of Traction lab prototypes
The main objective of this WP is the development of prototypes of innovative Traction components and/or sub-system, at TRL5 to TRL6 levels, prepare further validation in WP11 for a long term objective to prepare the future traction systems on trains testing (TRL7) on further work of S2R Traction TD.
Regarding the link to Shift2Rail, 7 KPIs are addressed, fully in line with S2R KPIs and PINTA project :
