Ineco is a member of the international consortium awarded the RAILGAP (Railway Ground truth and digital MAP) project, part of the Horizon 2020 Programme of the European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (GSA). CEDEX (Spanish Centre for Studies and Experimentation of Public Works) and the manager of Spain’s railway infrastructure, Adif, are also members of the consortium, led by Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI).
RAILGAP will collect massive quantities of data from commercial trains. Its focus will be to develop innovative high-precision tools to collect basic route data and digital mapping for railway lines with unprecedented accuracy. The project, which started in Autumn 2020, will allow reduced energy consumption by ERTMS and command and control systems, increasing their economic and environmental efficiency.
