MOVINGRAIL M12 project meeting

MOVINGRAIL M12 project meeting

On 2 and 3 December 2019 all MOVINGRAIL partners were welcomed by TU Braunschweig in Braunschweig, Germany, for the annual state of play project meeting.

The meeting addressed the general project planning and status of deliverables. There were discussions on recent updates of the four technical work packages, including bottlenecks, progress made and an overall planning towards the review. MOVINGRAIL also welcomed two members of the advisory board who contributed with their insight. There was also a workshop organized on “Interlocking principles - How to protect trains running through a point zone.”

The project team was taken a tour of the simulation facilities and also had the opportunity to test drive a train with real world experience.

On the first evening the team was invited by TU Braunschweig to a restaurant on the top of the building ‘Haus der Wissenschaft Braunschweig’ (the House of Science Braunschweig) which has a view over the city.


The project will bring forward innovative concepts of “moving-block” railway traffic operations by (1) advancing testing methods for ETCS Level 3 and (2) Analysing Virtual Coupling which will lead to convoys of automated trains under cooperative adaptive control.
