SAFETY4RAILS Information System platform demonstration at Madrid Metro simulation exercise
SAFETY4RAILS is the acronym for the European Union Horizon 2020 co-funded innovation project entitled: "Data-based analysis for safety and security protection for detection, prevention, mitigation and response in trans-modal metro and railway networks" which started in October 2020. Its focus is to support the increase of security and resilience against combined cyber-physical threats including natural hazards to railway and metro systems. Its objectives target capabilities to support the characteristics of resilient systems; resilience represented by cycles containing phases of identification, protection, detection, response and recovery (Department of Communications 2019) (or similarly named phases). An ESREL paper in 2021 introduced the SAFETY4RAILS project and the SAFETY4RAILS Information System platform as well as some of the tools that are included in the platform. This paper will describe the architectural solution implemented for the platform in the last year and the demonstration of representative capabilities from the first simulation exercise with Madrid Metro at the beginning of 2022.
