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.

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.

 

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No: 777576
