On 1st of October 2016, a European cooperative research project within the Shift2Rail H2020 Framework successfully started. Safe4RAIL aims to create safety concepts for mixed-critical ethernet-based networking as well as a mixed-criticality application framework, including the brake-by-wire concept. Safe4RAIL will reinforce European competitiveness by offering fundamentally simplified electronic and Train Control and Monitoring architectures required for the optimization of railway systems, to minimize system lifecycle and operational costs.
On 13th and 14th October 2016 the Safe4RAIL project consortium met for the first time at the kick off meeting in Vienna at TTTech’s premises. The first day was dedicated to the organization of the collaboration and to get to know each other. The second day focused on the technical work packages, the starting points for the technical work and a concrete action list towards the timely submission of the first project Deliverables.
