The ASTRail project falls within the scope of the topic S2R-OC-IP2-01-2017, Operational conditions of the signalling and automation systems...
signalling system hazard analysis and GNSS SIS characterization along with Formal Method application in railway field, which is connected with the complementary topics S2R-CFM-IP2-01-2015 and S2R-CFMIP2-01-2017.
The ASTRail project will act to enhance the signalling and automation system by searching innovative solutions that exploit cutting edge technologies already present in sectors different from the rail such as the avionics or the automotive sector.
Investigation of such technologies and assessment of their reusability in the railway field will be done taking in particular care all issues related to safety and performance in the rail system.
THE ASTRail GROUP

Enhancing the ERTMS with Moving Block System, Automatic Train Operations and GNSS positioning can ensure the competitiveness of the European railway industry, and, in the meanwhile, guarantee a concrete improvement in the quality of the European railway transport system, solving the problem of increasing demand on high density lines.
