Railway applications - Communication, signalling and processing systems - European Rail Traffic Management System - Driver-Machine Interface - Part 6: Audible information

This Technical Specification describes from an ergonomic point of view how ERTMS information shall be arranged and displayed. This Technical Specification describes more ergonomic details than currently provided by the ERTMS/ETCS/GSM-R specifications. This Technical Specification defines the ergonomics for the Driver-Machine Interface (DMI) for the ERTMS/ETCS Train Control System, and for the integrated ERTMS/GSM-R Train Control and Train Radio Systems, and for the stand alone ERTMS/GSM-R Train Radio Systems and for other technical systems currently provided on the engines. The ergonomics covers – the general arrangements (dialogue structure, sequences, layout philosophy, colour philosophy), – the symbols, – the audible information, – the data entry arrangements. The aims of the ERTMS/ETCS/GSM-R Train Control and Train Radio Systems are standardised systems facilitating interoperable movement of trains and permitting economies of scale in procurement and operations. The objective of this Technical Specification is to define the minimum requirements on the DMI that are necessary to enable these objectives to be achieved. Hence the Technical Specification is limited to ergonomic considerations and does not define the technology to be used for the implementation. The reasons for defining the ergonomics of the DMI are as follows: – achieving harmonised and coherent presentation for ERTMS/ETCS and STM information. Given the large number of STM’s requiring the use the ERTMS/ETCS DMI, only a harmonised approach is feasible; – defining Driver-Machine Interface ergonomics that is compatible with agreed interoperable ERTMS specifications; – to reduce the risk of incorrect operation by a driver working with different trains fitted with ERTMS/ETCS and ERTMS/GSM-R; – facilitating train operation with a unified ergonomics, hence reducing the cost of driver training. This Technical Specification is applicable on all trains fitted with the ERTMS/ETCS and also for trains fitted with train radio (GSM-R) DMI. The scope of this Part 6 of the Technical Specification is to define the audible information used with the ERTMS/ETCS DMI and with the ERTMS/GSM-R DMI. The operational procedures for the GSM-R radio are out of scope of this document.

CLC/TS 50459-5 for symbols for ERTMS/ETCS/GSM-R

These Technical Specifications contain the ergonomic arrangements of information on the ERTMS

DMI Display. Most items are illustrated with an example.
This document does not cover audible information to be used for STM.

The files, in a WAV-format, containing the examples for the sounds can be heard by clicking the

corresponding figures. The WAV-format file is only informative. The examples are given only to be

sure that the sounds provided by the real system are similar.

1 Scope

This Technical Specification describes from an ergonomic point of view how ERTMS information shall

be arranged and displayed. This Technical Specification describes more ergonomic details than

currently provided by the ERTMS/ETCS/GSM-R specifications.

This Technical Specification defines the ergonomics for the Driver-Machine Interface (DMI) for the

ERTMS/ETCS Train Control System, and for the integrated ERTMS/GSM-R Train Control and Train

Radio Systems, and for the stand alone ERTMS/GSM-R Train Radio Systems and for other technical

systems currently provided on the engines.
The ergonomics covers

– the general arrangements (dialogue structure, sequences, layout philosophy, colour philosophy),

– the symbols,
– the audible information,
– the data entry arrangements.

The aims of the ERTMS/ETCS/GSM-R Train Control and Train Radio Systems are standardised

systems facilitating interoperable movement of trains and permitting economies of scale in

procurement and operations. The objective of this Technical Specification is to define the minimum

requirements on the DMI that are necessary to enable these objectives to be achieved. Hence the

Technical Specification is limited to ergonomic considerations and does not define the technology to

be used for the implementation.
The reasons for defining the ergonomics of the DMI are as follows:

– achieving harmonised and coherent presentation for ERTMS/ETCS and STM information. Given

the large number of STM’s requiring the use the ERTMS/ETCS DMI, only a harmonised approach

is feasible;

– defining Driver-Machine Interface ergonomics that is compatible with agreed interoperable

ERTMS specifications;

– to reduce the risk of incorrect operation by a driver working with different trains fitted with

ERTMS/ETCS and ERTMS/GSM-R;

– facilitating train operation with a unified ergonomics, hence reducing the cost of driver training.

This Technical Specification is applicable on all trains fitted with the ERTMS/ETCS and also for trains

fitted with train radio (GSM-R) DMI.

The scope of this Part 6 of the Technical Specification is to define the audible information used with

the ERTMS/ETCS DMI and with the ERTMS/GSM-R DMI.

The operational procedures for the GSM-R radio are out of scope of this document.

3 Terms and definitions

For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in CLC/TS 50459-1 and the

followings apply.
3.1
duration

time elapsed from the start to the stop of an elementary sound of the audible information

3.2
sound group
set of sounds relating to similar events
4 Symbols and abbreviations

For the purposes of this document, the symbols and abbreviations given in CLC/TS 50459-1 apply.

5 Audible information

The use of the audible information shall not be confused with the use of flashing information as

defined in CLC/TS 50459-1, 4.1.1.4. Audible information is used to draw the driver attention from the

outside to the display.
Audible information is considered as complementary information for ERTMS/ETCS.

Audible information is classified in ten timbres. The timbre allows the driver to identify if the audible

information is a feedback, a warning, an incoming call or something else.

The level of each audible information shall be at least 13 dB above the ambient noise in the cab.

The loudspeakers shall be placed according with the architecture of the cab to obtain the best audible

perception.

The loudness of each signal should be individually adjustable in accordance with the cab environment;

especially during installation.
The bandpass shall not be above 7 kHz.

Audible information can be generated simultaneously. For audible information generated in loops the

transients shall be avoided.

The audible information shall be as described in this Part 6 of the Technical Specification. Voice

output shall only be used optionally as secondary, additional information
