Description

The Brussels based company is well-established on the market of the European Railway Traffic Management System (ERTMS) software and hardware. In order to expand their business, the company is seeking partnerships with companies already active on the market of the ERTMS software and hardware for commercial or technical partnerships with the objective to conclude commercial agreement with technical assistance. The products need to be adapted to the characteristics of the partner and will be developed onsite, therefore commercial agreement with technical assistance is sought. Details of the agreement are to be discussed depending on the needs of the partner. Preferred countries are Japan, China, North America and Latin America, although others are not excluded. Its main products are: - A range of instruments that allow the client to optimize the tests and commissioning time as well as reducing costs without sacrificing data quality. The CamCorder is an essential onsite testing tool that allows full and synchronized recording, replay and reporting of all trackside and onboard data needed during the testing and commissioning phase of any significant rail project. It delivers three essential functionalities which result in the complete optimization of the testing process. Not only does record the Safe Driver Machine Interface and track all data transiting on the train’s BUS, it also allows for this data to be played in a synchronized fashion. This product also delivers official reports. It supports all types and brands of on board units. - A product line including a set of measurement instruments that facilitate efficient and effective maintenance on both maintenance vehicles and commercial trains, regardless of whether they are fitted with European Train Control System (ETCS). This product line is highly customizable and can be set-up to deliver preventive maintenance to any ‘legacy’ Automatic Train Protection balises, regardless of whether they are fitted with ERTMS or not. This moving laboratory automate balise maintenance without sacrificing the quality of the assessment. Highly detailed signal quality information is produced by the product every time it passes over a balise, and it is able to deliver a level of signal information that, previously, was only available when sending the balises to laboratories. Main characteristics: o Compatibility with all Eurobalises’ and legacy KER balises o Geolocalization of the balises and creation of a cartography o Detection of possible Big Metal Masses on the track that will affect BTM performances o Computation of a signature on measurements o Auto-marking on all Eurobalises matching signature o Generation of a full report after each test journey The line is completed with other products such as: o An Onboard Monitoring Box: it is a passive acquisition and monitoring device o A Track Circuit Life Check: it is a versatile measurement instrument that facilitates track circuit maintenance and is usable on both diagnostic and commercial trains. - A product that enables to match business needs by capturing the precise intentions of the business. By capturing the precise intentions of the business, the platform ontology is able to deliver crystal-clear data to both business and IT stakeholders, allowing the company to move, grow and develop with strength and speed. It allows to test and analyse the specifications at the earliest stage of the development process. Once validated, the pre-tested specification can immediately follow into IT implementation. The executable software generated by the ODASE platform is fed by information previously housed in multiple silos to create a system able to handle any type of automation. This makes the systems more efficient and future-proofed. - A library that provides all the functionalities needed to use the SLL, STL and Application Layer (Subset-058) protocols in the hosting applications. It is built in C/C#/Ada environment.

Advantages and innovations

The company products cover three essential needs at a time: testing optimization, maintenance automations, and IT integration. Those are the main concerns of their clients worldwide. All product ranges are innovative in their conception. For example, the maintenance product for maintenance vehicles and commercial trains is the first one that allows analysing the balises onsite without sending them to the certification laboratories. The ontology matching business needs product saves time, money and makes the sytem more efficient and future-proofed since it allows to pre-test the specifications before implementation.
