It is important for railway equipment to be refurbished to ensure compatibility with advanced technology, quality, and security.
Transurb is very proud that MÁV-START, the passenger transport division of the Hungarian State Railways, has chosen to collaborate with us for this phase of renewal of their train driving simulators fleet.
Scope of work
As far as the hardware part is concerned, Transurb will take care of the refurbishment of an existing full-cab and two compact simulators, and the replacement of three worn out compact simulators with four brand new nano simulators.
Software-wise, the old and new simulators will all be equipped with our latest computer-generated imagery technology and our simulation management software, R3. This software offers infinite possibilities of customisation of training sessions, which corresponds exactly to MÁV-START’s needs, a priority for Transurb.
As a specialist in European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) simulation, Transurb will provide MÁV-START with solutions dedicated to the learning of European Train Control System (ETCS) level 1 and 2 together with the transitions to and from the national train protection system EVM.
Furthermore, an ERTMS editor tool will enable the MÁV-START instructors to create, modify and customise their scenarios and the signalling in a fast and intuitive manner, in order for the trainees to be confronted with all the challenging situations they might encounter both on a national and on an ETCS network.
Parallel project with KTI
Alongside this exciting project, Transurb will also provide the Hungarian Institute for Transport Science (KTI) with an exact replica of MÁV-START’s full-cab, as asked by the KTI.
Transurb is very pleased with these two simultaneous collaborations in Hungary and is looking forward to the evolution of both projects.
