RCA in a nutshell: Based on the RCA White Paper published in summer 2018, the RCA initiative is driven by several railways organized in EUG and EULYNX. The RCA initiative strives for a substantial improvement in cost, capacity, safety, reliability of the CCS (command, control, signalling) system. RCA starts with radio-based ETCS cab-signalling and EULYNX interfaces and adds a harmonized architecture with clearly defined interfaces leading to an upgradable system with interchangeable components. RCA includes the game-changers such as ATO, moving block, train-borne localization, FRMCS. An introduction to RCA is presented in a short video.
