Background: 

RHINOS aims at increasing the use of EGNSS to support the safety-critical train localization function for train control in emerging regional and global markets. RHINOS adds value to EGNSS by leveraging the results from prior or existing

projects, and develops a Railway High Integrity Navigation Overlay System to be used by the rail community.

RHINOS pillar is the GNSS infrastructure realized for the aviation application with additional layers that meet the rail requirements in the difficult railway environments.

RHINOS will feature an international cooperation with the Stanford University that has been involved in the aviation application since the birth of the GPS, gaining an undeniable knowledge of the GNSS performance and high-integrity applications.

Objectives: 

RHINOS aims at increasing the use of EGNSS to support the safety-critical train localization function for train control in emerging regional and global markets.
