Potential e gnss applications in rail
Potential E-GNSS applications in Rail

  • E-GNSS can provide benefits in combination with

  • sensors for precise train positioning relevant for signalling applications

  • conventional communication technologies for logistics applications.

  • Signalling

  • Logistics

  • Asset management

  • Low density lines

Improve monitoring of the railway assets both for operators and IM´s

Improve safety / reduce operational cost of low density lines

  • Main lines

  • Cargo monitoring

  • Improveavailability of thesupplychainvisibility informationto the LSP/LSC.

  • Georeferenced cargo status monitoring

  • Corridoring, Geofencing

Improve the precision of the odometry and eventually enable reduction of number of physical balises

In line with the MoUbetween EC, ERA and the rail industry association from 2012 E-GNSS can play a major role in rail safety (signalling and train control).

The possible benefits of E-GNSS for signalling and train control depend on further evolutions of ERTMS.

  • Passenger information systems

Improve precision and availability of positioning for on board passenger information systems

R d in rail segment
R&D in Rail segment

  • GRAIL-2  define, develop and validate an ETCS application in high-speed railway lines based on GNSS.

  • The proposed system is based on Enhanced Odometry, in a context of high speed lines.

GaLoROI development of a certified, safety relevant satellite based on-board train localisation unit suitable for low density railway lines.

SATLOC  development and demonstration of innovative GNSS Safety of Life rail application for the train control, speed supervision, traffic control and traffic management on low density lines.
