RAILCOM (Electromagnetic Compatibility between rolling stock and rail-infrastructure encouraging European interoperability)



  • Harmonisation of interference limits for train detection systems on TEN-T railway network;
  • Characterisation of the railway electromagnetic environment for communication systems, with correlation between EM emission and operating conditions of the system;
  • Compatibility between train detection systems (infrastructure) and electromagnetic interference from railway vehicles;
  • Electromagnetic compatibility of railway communication systems between vehicles, infrastructure, employees and passengers

Contribution to:

Expected benefits from project results:

  • Reduction of time and resources required to demonstrate EMC compliance of rolling stock for pan-European operation by up to 90%;
  • Increase in communication system capacity and availability by up to 10% through the elimination of repeated messages due to corruption by electromagnetic interference;
  • 5-10% increase in track capacity/occupancy and traction power through refinement of worst case scenarios and assumptions currently employed in EMC assessment of rolling stock and train detection systems
