On-board equipment test bed for the Korean bullet train


This project simulates a train running with its on-board equipment (anti-slip, engine block control, air conditioning, etc.) and checks whether the equipment responds according to the specifications.




The application, developed in partnership with Alstom Fluides et Mécanique, uses two types of systems:

  • Simulators based on VME and running VxWorks
  • Control stations based on Windows PCs

It simulates train behavior using VME-based systems, and provides industrial interfaces to simulate the train according to the systems being tested. Simulators are controlled by a test scenario manager supported by Windows PCs. The PCs display the system status on mimic diagrams animated by the Panorama SCADA system.

Codra developed the control station software.
