World-wide demand for rail transport capacity and interoperability is increasing, in urban metro, light-rail and mainline. Railways will meet this demand by installing new, more advanced digital rail control on existing infrastructure, such as
- CBTC for urban metros
- ERTMS for European railways
- Conventional rail control with new functionality
Since safety is always a top priority for rail control, the large demand poses a challenge– traditional methods for safety assessment consume too much time and become a bottleneck, delaying time-to-market and increasing costs.
