HITACHI Rail STS to upgrade CSD using AdaCore's GNAT Pro Software

HITACHI Rail STS selected (13-Oct-2020) AdaCore to supply the GNAT Pro Ada development environment targeting ARM processors to modernise Hitachi's Calculator of Available Safety (CSD) rail safety platform. The company stated: "In 2018, facing the problem of obsolete equipment and the need for ever greater computing power, HITACHI Rail STS decided to further modernise its safety platform with the ambitious goal of developing a single platform that is also compatible with the constraints of rolling stock and ground signalling". The AdaCore processor is expected to "ensure the safe circulation of trains on railway lines and metro networks". Hitachi Rail is seeking to obtain EN 50128 certification for the new platform by the end of 2020. [more - original PR]
