Duration: from 01/09/2016 to 31/08/2018
Coordinator: Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles, S.A. (CAF)
Total Project Value: € 13 291 983,55
S2R (H2020) co-funding: € 5 906 957,49
Complementary project of: SAFE4RAIL
CONNECTA aims at contributing to the Shift2Rail ’s next generation of TCMS architectures and components with wireless capabilities as well as to the next generation of electronic braking systems.
The project conducts research into new technological concepts, standard specifications and architectures for train control and monitoring, with specific applications in train-to-ground communications and high safety electronic control of brakes.
The project is developed in four phases of work which are reinforcing and extending the early work done in the TCMS part of Roll2Rail as well as start the specific activities of the MAAP of Shift2Rail. The major streams are described below.
