Description:
The European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) is an initiative backed by the European Union to enhance cross-border interoperability and signalling procurement by creating a single Europe-wide standard for train control and command systems.

The two main components of ERTMS are the European Train Control System (ETCS), a standard for in-cab train control, and GSM-R, the GSM mobile communications standard for railway operations. The equipment can further be subdivided between on-board and infrastructure equipment.

Companies

Companies developing ERTMS systems include UNIFE/UNISIG members Alstom, Thales, Invensys Rail Group, Ansaldo STS, Siemens Mobility, Bombardier Transportation and Eliop-Seinalia. Additionally, there are at least two new emerging suppliers, Czech and Japanese.
