Conventional vs CABS vs CBTC railway signalling & their impact to capacity

In railway signalling, capacity can be defined as the maximum number of trains that can pass a given location during a given time period at a specified level of reliability.

Safety Critical Software in Railway Signalling

Railway signalling applications are strictly related to safety critical software. Yet, how do we deal with safety requirements in software?

ERTMS and safety issues for railway operation

The ERTMS/ETCS equipment ensures safe movement of the equipped train at any time

CBTC Standardization: Mixed Operation on Shared Lines in accordance with ERTMS/ETCS Standards

Is it possible a CBTC standardization in accordance with ERTMS/ETCS ? Provisions have been made to plan for the migration from CBTC systems, to ETCS Level 3

The Future of Rail Signalling: The Transition to ERTMS event

The event will cover the latest updates on the change to ERTMS, discussing potential issues and pitfalls that might occur with the changeover, and considering who is responsible for the transition.

ETCS over GPRS: how, when and why!

Currently UNISIG consortium is working to standardize ETCS over GPRS as the communication technology chosen for ERTMS applications. A first release of the specification is to be submitted in 2015.

The ERTMS/ETCS free handbook. Download it for free in PDF format!

The ERTMS/ETCS free handbook gives an overall description of railway signalling with a major focus to ETCS technology, to introduce the main topics all consultants interested or involved in railway signalling projects.

The new ETCS Limited Supervision L1LS to be commissioned in Switzerland by 2018

The ETCS Limited Supervision mode has been recently defined as a fully standardized ETCS operation mode, to be interfaced with a national signalling system. It provides a flexible and scalable version of ETCS. It will be commissioned in Switzerland by Siemens within 2018, substituting the EuroZUB/EuroSignum National Signalling system.

Denmark High Speed Railway Line

There is no a true Denmark high speed railway line, partly due to the topography and partly because of population density; in the same time trading with the rest of Europe is increasingly important and the classic lines that carry this traffic are congested.

ETCS Levels: how do they work?

ETCS Level definitions are related to the trackside equipment used, to the way trackside information reaches the on-board units and to which functions are processed in the trackside and in the on-board equipment respectively.
