Impact

The ASTRail proposal fits the rich S2R framework and, as such, its expected impacts necessarily reflect the Work Programme and the MAAP objectives.
In a top-down approach, the expected impacts can be summarized as follows:
·  Work Programme level “Smart, green and integrated transport”
o  Resource efficient transport that respects the environment
o  Better mobility, less congestion, more safety and security
o  Global leadership of the European transport Industry
·  S2R MAAP level:
o  Develop, integrate, demonstrate, and validate innovative railway technologies and solutions with the objective to improve the competitiveness and attractiveness of the European Railway Sector
·  S2R IP2 objectives
o  Line capacity Increase
o  Operational realiability increase
o  Railway system life cycle cost reduction
o  Maintain the highest level of safety
o  Reduce costs (CAPEX and OPEX)
o  Strong integration of different technologies and systems not yet largely applied in the railway field
·  Technical Demonstrator (TD) level
o  TD2.2 Railway network capacity
o  TD2.3 Moving Block
o  TD2.4 Fail-safe Train Positioning
o  TD2.7 Formal methods for smart signaling systems

Obviously, ASTRail alone will not be able to impact on all such aspects. However, as part of S2R eco-system, it will contribute to all of them.
For this reason ASTRail closely cooperate with the S2R actors and projects.
