The main objective of VITE proposal is to reduce on-site tests for signalling systems leading to reducing overall testing costs. To achieve this main objective the work is organized in two main streams:
First, to propose a testing framework by carefully analysing user’s needs and current situation and from there building a process that can be accepted by all railway stakeholders and whose main strength will be to perform as many tests as possible in the lab.
Secondly, to propose a standard architecture for the lab testing including the interface specifications for both the connection between real equipment and the lab tools as for the connection between different labs for remote testing. This architecture will be developed together with some SW tools that will help to automatise lab testing.
RINA would increase the knowledge and level of confidence in the ETCS testing process that will simplify the certification. The use of standard methods and tools will increase also the cross acceptance of certificates between NoBos and NSAs.
RINA will use the architecture and methodology proposed to perform the test campaigns provided that will be accepted by all parties in a future.
