PIVOT combines the development of activities in several key Rolling Stock sub-systems to contribute to the achievement of the key S2R Master Plan objectives (high reliability, high capacity, low cost and improved performance) within Innovation Programme 1.
PIVOT seeks to extend the focus of innovation beyond the historic procurement limits using the sort of methodology developed in Roll2Rail’s Universal Cost Model as shown below.
PIVOT has released a brochure explaining the project's main objectives and structure. The brochure was widely distributed during the project's mid-term event held in Brussels on 18 October 2018.

PIVOT held its mid-term event in Brussels, Belgium, on 18 October 2018, gathering 40 PIVOT and non-PIVOT participants. Mat4Rail, RUN2Rail and Fair Stations have contributed to the event by linking their activities to the PIVOT Technology Demonstrators. In addition to the presentations given, poster sessions have triggered discussions on the different topics addressed, namely Modular Interiors and Cabin, Smart Performance Running Gear, Development of future brake system solutions, Entrance Systems and Conceptual design of the different demonstrators for carbodies.
