Braking Curves Simulation Tool  

The ETCS braking curves algorithm consists of a complex set of equations. The Agency has developed a tool:, which allows predetermining all the braking distances, as they would be computed by the ETCS on-board equipment. The tool allows capturing all train data (including the correction factor K_dryrst obtained from the Monte Carlo calculation) and trackside, which are relevant to the braking curve calculation and displaying graphically the braking distances so calculated.
