The aim of the project on behalf of the Eisenbahn-Bundesamt (German Federal Railway Authority) is to develop a complete test case catalogue. This shall be carried out on basis of the commissioning approval of VDE 8 and the planning for the Rail-Freight-Corridor 1. The research project is composed of two work packages. First, the German railway-related operational cases are presented. Further, test case groups and test case subgroups containing a generic test case catalogue are defined. Each test case subgroup can be structured in operational procedures.

Finally, the completeness of the test cases is examined by experts from both TU Dresden and CERSS. Thereby the expert knowledge of the ETCS type approval can be incorporated.
