* Abstract

The current process of putting ETCS equipment in service is affected by the testing process and laboratory procedures. This paper deals with two novel laboratory tools that the EATS project (FP7-TRANSPORT-314219) has produced in order to overcome some of the problems those processes show and advance towards the “Zero On-Site Testing” paradigm. On the one hand, saboteurs for the internal interfaces of the ETCS on-board system have been created. These saboteurs integrate seamlessly with the rest of the elements of the testing laboratory and allow to gather evidences regarding the safety functions of the equipment under test. On the other hand, the Wireless Communication Emulators have been also developed. These tools allow to put the wireless interfaces of the ETCS on-board equipment in the worst cases it will find in a real environment, by reproducing and injecting noise and interferer signals, and measuring the effect in the equipment under test.
