    TheThe needneed forfor MODURBAN (1/2)MODURBAN (1/2)With increasing concern from operators, confirmed by a worldwide UITP survey (37 answers), on the problems of:

    interoperability within one networkline extensions

    the MODURBAN project was launched with the aim of providing common functional specifications for operators and a common technical architecture for manufacturers.

    TheThe needneed forfor MODURBAN (2/2)MODURBAN (2/2)UITP Survey results:

    80% of operators see an advantage in interoperability in their network60% see an advantage to have independence between on-board and wayside equipment40% are prepared to support higher initial cost thanks to interoperability60% are interested to participate in a group applying the same common specifications for tenders

    Cornerstone of MODURBANCornerstone of MODURBAN

    The MODURBAN FRS contains the recommended functional and performance requirements, which constitutes the foundations of ModurbanResult of many years of operating and manufacturing experienceA complete set of "ready-to-use" requirements

    suitable for all operatorscovering systems ranging from manually driven trains to fully driverless operation

    A common system core ensures seamless upgrade from one level of automation to the next

    Innotrans - 2008 Page 10

    Benefits (1/2)Benefits (1/2)The assurance of a comprehensive set of requirements which derives from years of experience of major players in

    manufactureinstallation and commissioningsafety certification through risk analysis, safety plan, hazard logoperationsmaintenance

    Requirements which truly represent "state of the art" in all these critical aspectsSimplified tender process

    A "performance" specification with no surprises

    tenders using the Modurban FRS will avoid unreasonable or unforeseeable risk and cost factorsreduced system costs for:
