Introduction to CBTC system description

With CBTC, moving blocks introduce to the concept of contiguous track, because the railway is represented as a single contiguous block, rather than a set of adjacent blocks. This means that the safe separation behind the preceding train is dynamically calculated based on the maximum operating speeds, braking curves and locations of the trains on the alignment. Also, in this way the capacity of the railway is extremely increased.

Requirements Management for safety critical systems: a new white paper in PDF format!

This paper will drive you across the different phases of the V-cycle for railway application, by explaining the key role of requirements during each phase and presenting the Systems Engineering activities required to support and control product development.

How Track Circuits detect and protect trains: download your PDF copy!

Track circuits contributes for train detection but also for the vehicle’s speed control, since the electrical signals used for train detection can be exchanged between wayside and on-board for the transmission of speed commands.

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.

Environmental Sustainability of Rail Transportation

Since the train can be considered the transport mode of the future, national railway companies and European Union are currently working for a continuos upgrade of sustainable rail transportation, in order to guarantee the best quality of life to European citizens.

Railway signalling since the birth to ERTMS

Railway signalling can be defined as all systems used to control railway traffic safely, essentially to prevent trains from colliding. Over the years knoledgment and technology able to satisfy this issue have been implemented. ERTMS/ETCS is currently the most common signalling system adopted in Europe.
