Most critical applications today depend on computers, so a computer failure can cause financial disaster, serious injury, or even death. In this context, railways are considered a critical application, so they must meet the highest standards of availability and safety. Availability ensures continuous operation of the system, while a safe system must behave correctly in all operating and environmental conditions.

The interoperability between on track balises and the on board Balise Transmission Module systems depends on both sides' susceptibility and allowed emissions. For that assessment, the document that governs the testing methodology, tools and procedures (Subset 116) needs to be completed prior to its publication. The present paper proposes an advance beyond the state of the art for the rolling stock emission assessment in terms of the test setup and of the post-processing procedure. The documentation commonly used in ERTMS-related issues has been analyzed and the common tools and procedures have been taken into consideration for the proposal presented by the authors.

Purpose This article focuses on a novel Advanced Train LocAtion Simulator (ATLAS) for on-board railway location using wireless communication technologies, such as satellite navigation and location based systems. ATLAS allows the creation of multiple simulation environments providing a versatile tool for testing and assessing new train location services. This enhancement reduces the number of tests performed in real scenarios and trains, reducing the cost and development time of new location systems as well as assessing the performance level for given tracks. Methods The simulation platform is based on modular blocks, where each block can be replaced or improved. The platform uses Monte Carlo Simulation to generate results with statistical significance. This implementation allows the modification of the development platform to cover multiple requirements, such as, ranging errors in the input parameters or including other positioning technologies. In this paper, the generated input parameter errors have been taken from the results of the field tests realized by the 3GPP ensuring the validity of the used parameter errors. However, these could be easily adapted by the user to particular characterized environments. Results Case studies for the validation of ATLAS will be also introduced, including preliminary results related to the use of Global System for Mobile communications in Railway (GSM-R) and Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) technologies for positioning. The validation stage provides a way to test the platform functionalities and verify its flexibility. Conclusions The versatility of the platform to perform simulations using same configuration parameters for different case studies can be highlighted. Furthermore, first conclusions are drawn from the obtained results. The characterization of the infrastructure for the simulation and the performance improvement of the location systems in the tunnels (e.g., by including Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)) are necessary to achieve accuracy levels that can be valid for ETCS level 3.
