ETALON (Energy harvesting for signalling and communication systems)... is a Shift2Rail IP2 Open Call project within the Horizon 2020 Programmme of the European Commission.
ETALON will contribute to the enhancement of train integrity functionalities, providing a suitable energy supply for on-board train integrity and a robust radio communication system between vehicles that could be the basis for a train integrity check.
ETALON will also contribute to the reduction of cost, providing an energy harvesting solution for Smart Radio connected wayside objects and implementing an off-board radio communication system with object controllers that could minimize trackside infrastructure, particularly cabling.
Etalon is structured in 7 work packages that covers all the essential aspects of an R&D project: Management (WP1), Design & Specification (WP2), Development (WP3/WP4/WP6), Validation & Test (WP5), and Exploitation & Dissemination (WP7).

ETALON (Energy harvesting for signalling and communication systems) is a Shift2Rail IP2 Open Call project within the Horizon 2020 Programmme of the European Commission. ETALON will contribute to the enhancement of train integrity functionalities,providing a suitable energy supply for on-board train integrity (particularly targeted at cases where trains do not have any power supply available on the wagons) and a robust radio communication system between vehicles that could be the basis for a train integrity check.
