(M2O) Newsletter October 2020
Marathon to Operation (M2O) project has been building on the results of previous FP7project Marathon, followed by DynaFreight and FFL4E S2R projects. M2O collaborated with FR8RAIl II CFM partners project to develop Long Trains with Distributed power (DPS) involving up to 4 traction units (TUs) for a length reaching 1500m. All guided TUs were to be remotely controlled by GMS-R (two TU setup) or LTE (up to four TU setup). LTE could be an intermediate step towards the future FRMCS communication solution for which more details will be issued soon.
This newsletter sums up the main results achieved by the Marathon2Operations Consortium. All project documents and deliverables can be found on the project website at: https://www.marathon2operation.eu/web/.
