Railway High Integrity Navigation Overlay System

The RHINOS work programme includes the investigation of candidate concepts for the provision of the high integrity needed to protect the detected position of the train, as required by the train control system application. The EGNSS (GPS and GALILEO) plus the SBAS constitute the reference infrastructure that is available worldwide. In addition to that, local augmentation elements, ARAIM techniques and other sensors on the train are the add-on specific assets for mitigating the hazards due to the environmental effects which dominates the rail application.
RHINOS will be developed through an international cooperation with the Stanford University researchers that have been involved in the aviation application since the birth of the GPS. They have indisputable knowledge of the GNSS performance and high-integrity applications. The ambition is a positive step beyond the proliferation of GNSS platforms, mainly tailored for regional applications, in favour of a global solution. RHINOS would release the potential benefits of the EGNSS in the fast growing train signalling market
