Functional Testing of Rail Systems Engineering’s ATO system for Mainline Trains has been successfully completed on Switzerland’s SOB railway. The system is designed to run GoA2 over ETCS L1LS.
The Onboard Unit (RSE-OBU-1) is following the ERTMS standard protocol. The ATO system is completely independent of the trains existing ATP system. Its unique integration into the trains control unit also allows it to control mainline trains that are not equipped with an ETCS system.
The Onboard Unit can also run on non-ERTMS protocols. With our modular setup, smaller networks and standalone railways may link to their own control systems, transmitting via RSE’s simple communication channel. This will allow for the benefits of an ATO System like energy saving or timetable accuracy for a significantly lower budget.
