RFI - Safety-Critical Architectures

 

The project explores Safe Architectures for SIL4 Railway Systems. This three-year project will see a cooperation between RCL group and the R&D department of RFI - Rete Ferroviaria Italiana -, which is managing the railway network in Italy. Main targets of the project will be:

- Definition of architectures for two future SIL4 systems: PMF, which will work onboard of the train, and SEC, which will be deployed inside stations.

- Devising coding rules for implementing SIL4 software in the railway domain, including coding rules, coding styles and quality metrics.

- V&V Plan, and definition of Safety Cases

- Preliminary Hazard Analyses

- Modeling activities for the early validation of the systems above both in terms of Safety and Security.

- Exploring mechanisms for fault-tolerance in the railway domain in accordance with standards such as ERTMS / SCMT (Italian)

- Safe Visualization of safety-critical information on commercial OTS devices (e.g., tablets)

- Implementation of the "Protocollo Vitale Standard" to allow safe communications among subsystems.

Overall, the aim of the project is to devise architectures and mechanisms for SIL4 systems, along with prototypes of specific subsystems.

Project contract: POR FESR Toscana 2014-2020
Start date: 2017-02-01
End date: 2018-12-31

 

Goals and Objectives

In the context of integration of traditional tramway systems with metropolitan hybrid solutions tram-train type (Light Rail Transit, LRT), the SISTER project aims at combining the concepts of rail safety with a higher operative automation level, guaranteed by innovative signaling solutions. The solutions developed within the SISTER project will allow significant improvements in capacity in LRT systems together with the assurance of fast, safe and efficient journeys.

Design of a solution that will improve safety in LRT mode by the development, integration and validation of three innovative actions:
- An innovative signaling system;
- A new remote sensing radar with a high reliability level;
- An innovative communication system based on radio broadband resilient to interferences.

The maturity level of the solution will be evaluated in a partner gate in order to make the necessary corrections to develop a final demonstrator.

TOSCA-FI: Tool Optoelettronico per Strutture in Calce cemento Acciaio - Ferrovie Italiane PDF Print E-mail
TOSCA-FI

Involvment type: participant
Project contract: FAR-FAS 2014
Start date: 2017-01-01
End date: 2018-12-31

Goals and Objectives

Develop an innovative diagnostic methodology for inspection and control of railway infrastructure such as bridges built in concrete, steel, or masonry,  in order to improve the current systems based only on visual examination.

High-resolution photography and thermography will be integrated with innovative remote-sensing technologies as 3D laser scanner, and fluorescence lidar.

The consortium will study data fusion methodologies necessary to correlate and merge two-dimensional and three-dimensional images aiming at strengthen the information content. Data coming from these different sources will flow into an ICT platform (i.e. a OLAP database) for analysis and historical archiving.

IRENE: Improving the Robustness of Urban Electricity Networks PDF Print E-mail
IRENE

Involvment type: participant
Project website: http://ireneproject.eu/
Project contract: Jpi Urban Europe, n°847342
Start date: 01-10-2014
End date: 31-03-2017

Project IRENE is researching how best to mitigate vulnerabilities of urban electricity grids by utilizing the flexibility of future smart grids with decentralized generation and smart control. The aim is to ensure availability of power supply for critical infrastructures to enable minimal viable operation during large scale power outages or shortages.

To achieve this we are investigating what social, economic and technical components will be needed to ensure that city based power generation and storage are routed and prioritized to enable these critical city functions while other noncritical consumers reduce their electricity load.

Project website:https://devasses.dei.uc.pt/index.php/
Project contract: PIRSES-GA-2013-612569 (FP7-PEOPLE-2013-IRSES n.612569)
Start date: 01-01-2014
End date: 31-12-2017

The DEVASSES project aims at taking a step forward in the design and deployment of large-scale, dynamic service-based software systems by supporting the transfer of knowledge on novel state of the art methods, techniques, and tools for both design-time and run-time verification and validation. The goal is to reinforce existing partners’ cooperation through a coordinated program of exchange of researchers, taking as context a common research problem, which provides the frame for the project scientific activities and cannot currently be tackled by any of the partners individually.
