Train control enhanced by modern
The overall performance of a rail rapid transit system depends largely
on the performance of the automatic train control (ATC) system
employed. A communication-based train control (CBTC) system is
devised by adding modern communication technologies to the ATC
CBTC signalling is currently standardised in accordance with
IEEE 1474.1 and has become the reference technology for metro
IEEE defines CBTC as a continuous automatic train control system
* High-resolution train location determination, independent of track
* Continuous, high-capacity, two-way train-to-trackside data
* Trainborne and trackside processors capable of performing
