Special feature of the project
ETCS Level 2 without signals in conjunction with ATO GoA 2 brings a significant hub in the train sequence with already available technology.
ETCS investigation on the Stuttgart S-Bahn main line Feasibility of using ETCS Level 2.
It was shown that tight block division at the platform using short track vacancy sections leads to increased capacity. The technical requirements for the ATO system were also further detailed for the first time for GoA 2 in the area of main railways.
The results showed that the use of ATO GoA 2 also makes it possible to operate trains automatically at short notice, which increases the operational quality and, in future, also the capacity of the lines.
