Eurotunnel tells us about the TrackCircuitLifeCheck
We have been working with Eurotunnel since 2015. Together, we are developing a unique tool to maintain track circuits, the TrackCicruitLifeCheck.
SNCF tells us about the BaliseLifeCheck
ERTMS Solutions has developed a tool, the BaliseLifeCheck (BLC), which automates balise maintenance. SNCF is using the tool since late 2015 for Eurobalise and KVB balises maintenance in France.
Network Rail, in the context of their Thameslink Programme, awarded ERTMS Solutions as supplier for its integrated onsite testing solution: the ERTMSCamCorder.
Testimonial Video of the University of Birmingham about the role of Odase in railways data integration
We had the chance to interview John Easton, Lecturer working in the Birmingham Centre for Railway Research and Education. He is telling us about ontologies, how they use it for their Railways’ projects and why is Odase platform a essential key for their success.
“Thanks to this partnership, SYSTRA Scott Lister is now able to undertake a validation of clients’ requirements and design principles at the earliest stage of the V-cycle, independently from ETCS suppliers…”
ERTMS Solutions and Expandium celebrate 10 years of a successful partnership, and prepare the future
Our collaboration started 10 years ago when we established that the biggest challenge with ERTMS implementation was the difficulty for signaling and telecom departments to work together, despite the obvious link between GSM-R and ETCS.
“When we started the analysis of ETCS level 2 message between EVC & RBC, we encountered issues during the testing. The ERTMSCamCorder was the only tool on the market enabling to compare the results and discover the origins of troubles (RBC or EVC)”.
“When I first met ERTMS Solutions, I had very specific requirements for ERTMS testing and maintenance, and ERTMS Solutions was the only company able to provide me with a relevant solution, within our quality, budgets and timing criteria.”
Deutsche Bahn Netz AG uses ERTMSCamCorder on all its T&C projects
“Initially, the main reason for the use of ERTMSCamCorder was that it could potentially reduce the time to perform tests. Experience has shown that the applications are much broader and diverse, especially during the replay, sometimes needed after a test journey. It was a great support.”
“The ERTMSFormalSpecs enables to show with videos what the behavior of a train should be in real conditions; it is already used by the ERTMS Users Group for specifications maintenance and by Thales as a tool to verify the braking curves. It was pinpointed as the best tool to be used for our training programme.”
Five students took part to the first module of the ERTMS Academy, the “Boot Camp”, in May and June 2015. It was an occasion, for them, to learn the basics about ERTMSFormalSpecs. This was especially in the framework of ERTMS Solutions’ contract with the ERTMS Users Group.
Banedanmark about ERTMSFormalSpecs and the ERTMS Academy
“ERTMS Solutions has been very keen to adapt to the actual need of the railways and to be able to make changes to the ERTMSFormalSpecs tool according to suggested improvements. ERTMSFormalSpecs is a good tool to understand the impact of changes to the ETCS specifications.”
Hitachi Rail Europe
“ERTMS onsite testing is a very rigorous process, taking much more time than one would expect. The ERTMSCamCorder, which is one of the core solutions provided by ERTMS Solutions, optimises these activities, and has no equivalent in today’s tools market.”
Belgorail selects ERTMS Solutions’ ERTMSCamCorder to improve onsite testing
“Any time there is an ETCS onboard test: we record the DMI and the infrastructure, and we analyze it to output findings. So for each ETCS test, the use of ERTMSCamCorder is mandatory.”
Infrabel tells us about the ERTMSCamCorder - Part 1
“We use the ERTMSCamCorder as to automate and accelerate the tests results, which we perform before the entry into service of a line equipped in ETCS level 1 or 2. It’s very nice working with ERTMS Solutions because of the feedback on their products. ERTMS Solutions’ products are of very good quality; they are reliable.”
Infrabel tells us about the ERTMSCamCorder - Part2
“Over the last years, where we have used the ERTMSCamCorder (EPAT), we have never reported any defect. Thus my feedback is that I’m entirely satisfied of the ERTMS Solutions products.”
Alstom Transports chooses ERTMS Solutions FFFIS EuroRadio Library for its COMET project
“The main challenge for Alstom was to cut to the minimum the development, testing and maintenance costs of this board. For that purpose, integrating a COTS software library, already proven in the field, is a key asset.”
Siemens Signalling Belgium chooses the ERTMSCamCorder for faster and cheaper onsite testing.
“We have been working in very close relationship with our customer INFRABEL in Belgium since the beginning of the ERTMS Corridor C project. We exchange best practices with our customers, and using theERTMSCamCorder for onsite testing is an excellent example of this.”
