NL: Tijdens de Covid-19 periode biedt TU Delft verschillende uitdagende stage- en afstudeeropdrachten aan, die samen met het bedrijfsleven en de faculteiten CEG, 3mE, TPM en EWI zijn opgezet, gerelateerd aan het optimaliseren van het Nederlandse spoorsysteem. Studenten van iedere faculteit zijn vrij om te reageren. Opdrachten kunnen in overleg worden aangepast om te kunnen voldoen aan specifiek gestelde voorwaarden per afdeling of studierichting en begeleiding is mogelijk in het Engels of Nederlands.
EN: Also during Covid-19 it is possible to start a graduation project at TU Delft Railway Engineering. All projects can be adapted to any requirements set by your faculty or department and executed as internship or graduation project.
Working at Mott MacDonald
Mott MacDonald is a global multidisciplinary engineering, management and development consultancy, with over 16,000 employees active in 140 countries. Our employees are inspiring, highly-motivated and quality-driven people that collaborate closely with our clients to develop the best possible solutions. For this occasion, Mott MacDonald has joined forces with Dual Inventive to provide you with the best possible support in your graduation project.
ERTMS (European Rail Traffic Management System) relies on the MA (Movement Authorization = distance to the next danger point with additional information like slopes) to control train movement. For a given MA, ERTMS trains compute their own braking curve to stop before the danger point. TU Delft’s new concept Beyond ERTMS, introduces the SA (Speed Authorization = the speed the train is allowed to drive on any location at any point in time), as a strong simplification to the MA. Beyond ERTMS trains merely need a very good ‘cruise control’ that obeys the SA. To allow both systems to co-exist, for example when migrating from ERTMS to Beyond ERTMS, a protocolconverter is required to translate between MA and SA. Your assignment is to identify the basic design / architecture of the protocolconverter and identify opportunities and drawbacks.
What we offer you
– Benefit from the collaboration between Mott MacDonald and Dual Inventive for this project;
– Work at the front of ERTMS development and innovation, investigating unexplored concepts;
– Gain lots of wider knowledge and experience from experts nationally and internationally;
– A dynamic and inspiring team to enjoy working with and learning from;
– Deviate from existing solutions by using and developing new, cutting edge technology.
