The INESS Project (Integrated European Signalling System), led by the UIC is being carried out by an extensive international consortium comprised of Railway Authorities, Manufacturers, Universities, Research Centres and Consultants.
This project, within the framework of the EU’s Seventh Research Framework Programme, has the objective of defining future signalling systems which include ERTMS according to greater standardisation principles, efficiency and adaptation to the requirements of railway authorities. The project started in October 2008 and should be completed by September 2011.
In this project CAF Signalling participates actively in the areas of Requirements and Design as well as in the definition of standards for the interfaces between the interlocks and other key elements in ERTMS systems. By doing this, the company reinforces its commitment and long-term pledge to providing signalling systems with added features, a higher level of standardisation and increased efficiency for his customers.
