ERTMS boosted: ERTMS with relative braking distance

Since the introduction of first High Speed lines in the early 80’, the commercial success of High Speed Trains has never declined. The deployment of High Speed Networks now expands nearly all over the world, and the level of patronage is constantly increasing, progressively leading to the saturation of the infrastructure. However, over the same period, low cost airlines emerged. To maintain Rail transportation in a competitive situation in relation with Road or Air, it is necessary to further increase the attractiveness of High Speed lines, i.e. higher frequencies, shorter journey times. To further expand the footprint of High Speed trains, it is necessary to increase the speed, but while increasing, or at least without affecting the capacity. This paper describes the concepts to increase both capacity and speed, beyond what conventional signalling systems usually provide.
