TD 3.1 - Enhanced Switch & Crossing System Demonstrator

The main objective of the ‘Enhanced Switch & Crossing System’ (TD 3.1) is to improve the operational performance of existing Switch & Crossing (S&C) designs through the delivery of new S&C subsystems with enhanced reliability, availability, maintainability and safety (RAMS), life-cycle costs (LCCs), sensing and monitoring capabilities, self-adjustment, noise and vibration performance, interoperability and modularity.

TD 3.3 - Optimised Track System

The ‘Optimised Track System’ (TD 3.3) will challenge track construction assumptions currently implicit in track design, and will explore how innovative solutions in the form of products, processes and procedures can provide higher levels of reliability, sustainability, capacity and LCC savings. The aim is to derive medium-term solutions, which calls for the solutions to be harmonised with current solutions and regulations.

TD 3.4 - Next Generation Track System

The ‘Next-Generation Track System’ (TD 3.4) aims to drastically improve the track system, targeting a time range some 40 years beyond the present state of the art. This implies that step changes in performance are to be highly prioritised. The TD process will follow a tightly integrated chain, setting out by initially identifying the long-term needs of the railway and the potential solutions for meeting these.

TD 3.5 - Proactive Bridge and Tunnel Assessment, Repair and Upgrade Demonstrator

The main objective of the ‘Proactive Bridge and Tunnel Assessment, Repair and Upgrade’ (TD 3.5) is to improve inspection methods and repair techniques to reduce costs, improve quality and extend their service life, if possible. Moreover, the reduction of noise and vibrations are prioritised objectives.

TD 3.6 - Dynamic Railway Information Management System (DRIMS) Demonstrator

The ‘Dynamic Railway Information Management System (DRIMS)’ (TD 3.6) aims to define an innovative system for the management, processing and analysis of railway data. The activities in this TD will be strongly linked with the other two TDs in the area of information capturing and management. DRIMS is intended to collect information from the Railway Integrated Measuring and Monitoring System (RIMMS – TD 3.7) and to provide high-quality input to the Intelligent Asset Management Strategies (IAMS – TD 3.8).

TD 3.7 - Railway Integrated Measuring and Monitoring System (RIMMS) Demonstrator

The ‘Railway Integrated Measuring and Monitoring System (RIMMS)’ (TD 3.7) is to provide innovative tools and techniques for capturing information on the current status of assets, in a non-intrusive and fully integrated manner. To this end, the TD will focus on asset status data collection in close interaction with TD3.1 through TD3.5.

TD 3.8 - Intelligent Asset Management Strategies Demonstrator (IAMS)

The vision of the ‘Intelligent Asset Management Strategies (IAMS)’ (TD 3.8) is a holistic, whole-system approach of asset management employing collected and processed data provided by TD3.6 and TD3.7. This includes putting long-term strategies in the context of day-to-day execution of the maintenance and other maintenance activities.

TD 3.11 - Future Stations Demonstrator

The primary objective of the ‘Future Stations’ (TD 3.11) is the provision of improved customer experience at stations. The TD is organised around four identified key functional demands: two demands relate to improving capacity and security in large stations, one demand relates to the design of small stations with the objective of reducing whole life costs and standardising design, where possible, and the final demand relates to accessibility.
