The main objective of INESS is to define and develop specifications for a new generation of interlocking systems and apply methods and tools capable of reducing LCC and enhance the standardisation process. In the context of the current European policies, it is expected to foster hereby migrations of signalling equipment and support the rollout of ERTMS. The European Commission and the European Railway Associations, together with the Railway Supply Industry, are working closely together to define the efficient migration strategy for ERTMS. This unique co-operation has offered the opportunity to harmonise the functions, architectures, interfaces and connections of the interlocking as a constituent of signalling involved in ERTMS. INESS will therefore support the development of a new generation of interlocking systems with optimal unified conception and interfaces towards adjacent systems such as the ETCS - Radio Block Centre and the outdoor equipment, in particular connecting to the ETCS.
