Towards a new test environment

Funded by the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 and with the supervision of the Shift2Rail JU, the VITE project was launched on 1st Nov 2016.

The main objective of VITE is to reduce the onsite testing by proving the cost-effectiveness of a baseline-independent testing strategy that will speed up the placing in service of ERTMS subsystems by means of performing virtual lab tests to check the interoperability, offering improved functionalities and reducing costs.

The consortium is formed by 11 companies with wide experience in the railway industry and from different areas of expertise.
