An article titled “ETCS Test Cases – Preparation for the commissioning in Germany” has been published in the technical journal SIGNALLING & DATACOMMUNICATION, issue 5/2020.

The article summarises the methodological approach and the outcome of the research project, which was conducted by the CERSS Kompetenzzentrum in collaboration with the Chair of Railway Signalling and Transport Safety Technology at the Technische Universität Dresden. In this project, a comprehensive and complete test case catalogue has been created for the ETCS in Germany in order to examine and test the ETCS-behaviours in line with the regulations. By using this catalogue, the ETCS-testing should be focused on the interaction of all the interfaces between human, train, interlocking and ETCS as a whole instead of component testing or subsystem testing.
