Business Risk Analysis of Virtual Coupling

DOWNLOAD HERE

Description: This output investigates the wider business risks associated with the implementation of Virtual Coupling in the different sectors of European railways. Building on expert inputs from online surveys and workshops, it found that the main criticality for the implementation refers to operators not adopting the technology due to business or safety concerns, and late or no adoption due to poor benefit to cost ratios.

How it brings us closer to achieving better rail for Europe: It brings us closer by helping stakeholders identify operational and commercial barriers and prioritise their mitigation measures to ensure timely and safe adoption of the new technology.
