ETCS Test Laboratories
The European Train Control System (ETCS) is being introduced on the first tracks through Europe at present – for a harmonized and borderless railway transport. To ensure interoperability of each new component, the conformity concerning the specification needs to be proofed. This can be realised by testing in an independent test laboratory. Three laboratories in Europe are specialized for testing ETCS components and subsystems in simulations – comprehensive, thorough and cost efficient. Working closely together, the ETCS Test Laboratories present their common and specific work together at the InnoTrans 2010.
