DIGIM Programme

The DIGIM (DIgital IMpacts on business processes) programme is a global, cross-functional programme aimed at leveraging new digital technologies to support business process development, improve railway safety and security, optimise operations and make better use of existing data.



DIGIM-II, the second phase of the DIGIM programme, comprises two projects: Connected Level Crossing (Phase 2) and Blockchain.

Connected Level Crossing (Second Phase)
In recognition of the importance of level crossing safety, and in continuation of the DIGIM I Connected Level Crossing project carried out in partnership with Dassault Systèmes, this project was launched in 2019, with seven participating members: SNCF, Network Rail, RAI, Via Rail Canada, FS Italiane, CARS and Infraestruturas de Portugal.

The aim of the project is to improve safety and efficiency at level crossings. In this project level crossing will be connected with cars to alert and warn drivers in relation to the level crossing’s status. If no action or insufficient action is taken by the driver, the car will take control of the system, slow down the car and stop the car safely before the barrier.

The project will run in two phases. In the first phase, in partnership with Dassault Systèmes, the system will be designed and simulated using the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform. The consequences of connecting cars to level crossings will then be simulated using the same software. The system will be implemented and tested in a real environment during the second project phase.
