Communication-Based Train Control System

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • The primary purpose of this report is to study different LRT components generally related to telecommunications/data networking such as CBTC (Communications-Based Train Control). CBTC have a significant advantage over traditional signaling systems when it comes to the real detection position of trains on the track. Traditional methods used to divide the track into fixed blocks while in CBTC the block moves along with the train giving us more accurate position increasing the overall capacity of the trains as the time between two trains get reduced. Other subsystems include ATP Automatic Train Protection) and ATO (Automatic Train Operation). Other components include interlocking which is communication of different switches and signals at the crossings that prevents adverse movements. (As cited in abstract.)
