  • Content of the Rail Call and 3 main rail Topics MG.2.1-2014. Intelligent Infrastructure Specific challenge: need for a step change in the productivity of the infrastructure assets. These assets will need to be managed in a more holistic and intelligent way, using lean operational practices and smart technologies that can ultimately contribute to improving the reliability and responsiveness of customer service and the whole economics of rail transportation Scope: The research and innovation activities will evolve within the following three complementary work streams to be addressed separately: A.  Smart, cost-efficient, high-capacity rail infrastructure: •  identifying relevant infrastructure-related challenges •  developing solutions that result in reduced investment and recurring operational costs and improve the reliability and availability of rail operations. 23
  • Main Topic: Intelligent Infrastructure B. Intelligent mobility management: •  development of intelligent and automated rail traffic dispatching systems supporting an integrated approach to the optimisation of rail operations at network, route and individual train level. These should reconcile business and operational requirements (namely customer service, capacity, speed, timekeeping, energy, asset management) with real-time field and asset condition monitoring to deliver normal or near-normal services during all but the most exceptional circumstances. •  emphasis on real-time data collection and analytics from trains and infrastructure for the purposes of predictive and adaptive control of the traffic and to minimise disturbances with a view to ensuring a minimum impact on services •  interfaces and compatibility with information services from other transport modes shall be guaranteed Full compatibility with European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) must be ensured. 24
  • Main Topic: Intelligent Infrastructure C. Energy management: •  innovative approaches to improve the efficiency of energy usage (vehicles, infrastructure and operation) •  development of smart concepts in intelligent design and management of energy systems for rail applications with a whole-of-life perspective (from concept to implementation through the design, procurement, manufacturing, construction, operations and maintenance phases) Expected impact: •  indicative surge in the utilisation of capacity within a range 70-90% •  reduction in the recurrent costs of rail operations within a range of 25-45% Type of action: Research and Innovation Actions (100% funding) – Two stage Ø  25

Seamless multimodal travel: •  enhance the rail traveller experience centred on solutions that respond to customer needs to support anytime, anywhere door-to-door intermodal journeys encompassing distinct modes of transportation, including factors: •  as travel planning •  one-stop-shop ticketing and booking transactions •  en-route travel companion •  real-time re-accommodation 26
  • Main Topic: Smart Rail Services Scope: •  conceiving and prototyping an on-line, mobile, suite of integrated (planning & reservation of user-friendly multimodal trips and services) •  easily accessible entitlements, validation and control for all transport modes, en-route assistance including re-accommodation •  supported by business analytics providing relevant feedback of traveller data with the aim of ensuring more robust and responsive transport operations •  based robust business models capable of guaranteeing the economics of these e-services in the long-term. 27
  • Main Topic: Smart Rail Services B. Logistic services: •  acquire a new service-oriented profile for rail freight services (intermodal) while incorporating innovative value-added services •  increase productivity, fostering technology transfer from other sectors into rail freight Scope: •  addressing the key challenges of freight through a systematic "top-down" approach (applicability of the solutions on a European scale or based on trainload/intermodal /wagonload or commodity-based segments) •  define the optimal combination of business, operational and technological solutions Priority should be given to those aspects that maximise potential returns in the short-term and require only moderate investment. 28
  • Main Topic: Smart Rail Services Expected impact: •  increased rail attractiveness through a new service profile focused on customers by providing them with an integrated end-to-end solution for their travel needs – from transaction support to en-route assistance •  Logistic Services projects should be aimed at reaching 98% level on-time delivery •  achieving significant gains from a diversification of the freight business •  re-engineering production processes towards a leaner, more servicefocused stance capable of delivering significantly higher levels of productivity (e.g. a doubling of both the revenue per employee and the annual load-runs per wagon, reduction of up to 50% in dwell times and a two-fold increase in the load factor for trains/wagons) Type of action: Research and Innovation Actions (100% funding) – Two stage 29
