Railway applications - Communication, signalling and processing systems - European Rail Traffic Management System - Driver-Machine Interface -- Part 5: Symbols

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); .symbols; .audible information; .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 of the Technical Specification (Part 5) is to define the symbols used with the ERTMS/ETCS and the ERTMS/GSM-R DMI. The actual use of the symbols is depending on the availability of the function addressing the symbol.

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);

 symbols;
 audible information;
 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 of the Technical Specification (Part 5) is to define the symbols used with the

ERTMS/ETCS and the ERTMS/GSM-R DMI. The actual use of the symbols is depending on the

availability of the function addressing the symbol.

3 Terms and definitions

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

4 Symbols and abbreviations

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

5 Use of symbols
5.1 Principles

The principles underlying the design and use of the symbols presented in the following clauses are

described within CLC/TS 50459-1.

The appearance of the symbols in this Technical Specification is normative. However, this does not

imply that the symbol must be shown on the DMI if a function is considered to be optional. The explicit

meaning is, that if the function is available, it must be presented in the way described in this document.

If it is not needed, then the DMI does not show the information.

If a symbol is used, its form, shape, colour and size shall be as specified in this Technical

Specification (CLC/TS 50459-5). Other information in Tables 1 to 11 is for reference. See also

CLC/TS 50459-1 for further information.

The symbol area codes for the ERTMS/ETCS symbols refer to Part 2 of this Technical Specification;

for the ERTMS/GSM-R symbols to Part 3 of this Technical Specification.
5.2 ERTMS/ETCS symbols

NOTE The “Symbol Area” column in the descriptions below is included for clarity and ease of understanding.

For good visibility all symbols are presented with the recommended background colour ‘dark blue’. In

an application the symbols shall have transparent background.

In general, symbols for area D2/3/4 with the size 20 x 20 have their reference point at the bottom of

the symbol itself.
