The prototype housing will contain U-TEST® software capable of calculating a train’s position and speed in real time, using data provided by a GPS antenna and an odometer (a device for measuring distance). The module will compare its measurements with a MATLAB/Simulink model developed by SNCF’s materials engineering centre, automatically applying the train’s brakes if any discrepancy is detected. The module will be controlled via a tablet-based web interface.

Using U-TEST® for the first time to control speed, this agreement marks a new breakthrough for SPHEREA in the rail sector.
