The project will focus on the digital technologies which could lead of quick wins for the railway business.<br class='autobr' /> This project provides the opportunity to develop a common approach for the benefit and interest of the Rail community by identifying:</p> <ul class="spip"><li> risks and opportunities analysis of the application of digital promising technologies in the railway sector</li><li> Priorities and recommendations for the implementation of digital technologies</li><li> potential partnerships with high level center of competence developing digital enabling technologies</li></ul><h3 class="spip">DIGIM Programme </h3> <p>The DIGIM (DIgital IMpacts on business processes) programme is a global, cross-functional programme aimed at leveraging new digital technologies to support business process development, improve railway safety and security, optimise operations and make better use of existing data.</p> <h3 class="spip">DIGIM I</h3> <p>DIGIM I, the first suite of projects within DIGIM, was a cooperative effort between seven UIC members: Canada, Italy, Iran, Luxembourg, Russia and the U.K. DIGIM I launched in 2017 and was completed in 2018.<br class='autobr' /> Three projects, including two proof of concepts, were developed within the scope of DIGIM I: the Clear Station, Connected Level Crossing, and Core projects.</p> <p><strong>Clear Station</strong><br class='autobr' /> The aim of this project is to ensure safety and complete autonomy for people with disabilities in train stations, improving accessibility for all users, reducing safety risk in emergency and normal situations, and enhancing the customer experience.</p> <p>The Clear Station system helps blind and partially sighted passengers to be guided safely and autonomously from point A to point B inside the station by advising them of their current location at the station, requesting their desired destination (platform, toilet, shopping area, etc.), recommending a safe route and guiding them safely and with full autonomy to their destination.</p> <p>The proof of concept has been successfully tested and evaluated by a group of disabled people in Ottawa railway station.</p> <p><strong>Connected Level Crossing</strong><br class='autobr' /> Waiting behind barriers at level crossings is not pleasant for drivers, and long waiting times may result in dangerous behaviours such as breaching the level crossing. The aim of the Connected Level Crossing project is to optimise closing times at level crossing barriers by considering train speed in order to minimise waiting times and create safer operating conditions at existing level crossings.</p> <p>The proof of concept was successfully tested and evaluated in Canada. A software application has been developed to provide drivers with real-time information on stations, level crossing closure times and estimated closure duration.</p> <p><strong>Core</strong><br class='autobr' /> DIGIM programme members were surveyed with the aim of gathering information on all of the initiatives and requirements necessary to select the most relevant digital enabling technologies that can easily be developed and could result in quick wins for the railway sector.

In this project level crossing will be connected with cars to alert and warn drivers in relation to the level crossing's status. If no action or insufficient action is taken by the driver, the car will take control of the system, slow down the car and stop the car safely before the barrier.</p> <p>The project will run in two phases. In the first phase, in partnership with Dassault Systèmes, the system will be designed and simulated using “3DXperience” simulation software. The consequences of connecting cars to level crossings will then be simulated using the same software. The system will be implemented and tested in a real environment during the second project phase.</p></div> TRISTRAM http://www.mkforce.com/projects/article/tristram http://www.mkforce.com/projects/article/tristram 2019-08-22T15:13:14Z text/html en <p>Background <br class='autobr' /> The need for vegetation management goes hand in hand with the need for safe and reliable railway operations.

Furthermore, vegetation management reduces risks to customers and personnel.<br class='autobr' /> Vegetation control on railway tracks is a key activity undertaken by railway infrastructure managers to ensure safe and efficient operations. In light of increasing transport requirements, successful and efficient vegetation management in the railways is governed by legislation and regulations at various levels: EU, national, federal, regional (where applicable) and local.</p> <p>Studies conducted by the <a href='http://www.mkforce.com/sustainable-development/environment/article/sustainable-land-use' class='spip_in'>UIC Sustainable Land Use Network</a> show that selecting an economical and environmentally friendly vegetation management plan that can be implemented on railway infrastructure in a technical and operational context is effective in minimising the railways' impact on the environment and optimising their environmental performance.</p> <p>At present, the purpose of using multiple vegetation control methods is to facilitate the creation of a more productive and attractive landscape resource. The main goals are to minimise unwanted chemical deposits, environmental impact and risks to human health.</p> <p>The vegetation can currently be controlled effectively by using herbicides, especially conventional chemical herbicides. However, the railways are aware of their responsibilities with regard to a clean and biologically diverse environment. Significant political and public pressure to move away from the use of conventional chemical herbicides is an additional driver for the railways to work on a strategy for transition from well-established conventional methods to integrated vegetation control management.</p> <p>Since 2019, UIC has been collaborating with its members to develop a holistic approach to integrated vegetation control management on railway tracks. Transitioning from conventional chemical herbicides to integrated vegetation control constitutes a major challenge for the railways, especially in the railway track area, since:</p> <ol class="spip"><li> all promising alternative methods of vegetation control, such as hot water, wet steam, organic acids and electro-weeding, are currently <ul class="spip"><li> in research and development phase,</li><li> not yet mature enough for large-scale industrial application on the railway track area,</li><li> required to be officially registered and approved by EU and national authorities.</li></ul></li><li> further research is needed with regard to <ul class="spip"><li> adaptation to the specific requirements of the railway track area (track geometry, electrical installations or devices, corrosive materials, etc.),</li><li> automation and improvement of operational speed,</li><li> improvement of the duration of the effects of treatment (reducing the need for multiple treatments).</li></ul></li><li> conventional chemical herbicide-based methods (i.e. glyphosate) are the most easily accessible on the market and, to date, are the most effective and cost-efficient substances available for vegetation control.</li><li> it is not yet clear yet whether it will be possible to completely abandon vegetation control using conventional chemical herbicides in the future.</li></ol><div class="highlight highlight-inverse"><h3 class="spip">Objectives</h3> <p>Objectives</p> <ol class="spip"><li> Progress from a single method-based concept - spraying of conventional chemical herbicides - to an integrated, flexible, multi-method-based approach.</li><li> Develop a strategy for transition from conventional chemical herbicides to integrated vegetation control in the railway track area.</li><li> Facilitate and promote information and knowledge exchange between the railways on all aspects of integrated vegetation control, with a special focus on investigations into and experience with alternative methods of vegetation control on railway track, including the associated regulatory constraints.</li><li> Improve and expand upon the technology-based monitoring and assessment approach developed within the framework of the Herbie project, with a particular focus on acquisition of reliable data to measure the economic and operational performance of alternative methods for vegetation control.</li><li> Collect best practices and strategies for supporting integrated vegetation management approaches by means of IT tools and solutions.</li><li> Explore options at national and EU level for funding collaborative efforts undertaken by the railways to adapt alternative methods of vegetation control to the railway sector's specific requirements.</li></ol></div><h3 class="spip">Work Packages</h3> <p><span class='spip_document_3038 spip_documents'> <img src='http://www.mkforce.com/local/cache-vignettes/L500xH178/uic-tristram-wps-d72ca.png?1585821041' width='500' height='178' alt="" /></span></p> <p><strong>WP1: Global Strategy</strong></p> <ul class="spip"><li> Task 1.1 Strategy Development</li><li> Task 1.2 Parameters needed</li></ul> <p><strong>WP2: Information & Knowledge Exchange</strong></p> <ul class="spip"><li> Task 2.1.
