With rapid population explosion, improving rail transit speed and capacity is
strongly desirable around the world. Communications-based train control (CBTC)
is an automated train control system using high capacity bidirectional train–ground
communications to ensure the safe operation of rail vehicles. This book presents
the latest advances in CBTC research. The contributed chapters from leading
experts in the field cover different aspects of modelling, analysis, design, testing,
management, deployment, and optimization of CBTC systems.
Advances in Communications-Based Train Control Systems begins with the
background and evolution of train signaling/train control systems. It introduces the
main features and architecture of CBTC systems and describes current challenges
and successful implementations around the world. Subsequent contributed chapters
discuss such key research areas as
• Nondestructive testing techniques that can be employed to inspect rails
and fastening parts
• New wireless channel modelling techniques for underground tunnels
and viaducts
• Advanced wireless communication systems to improve CBTC
communication availability
• Schemes to integrate train control and train–ground communications
by modelling the control system of a group of trains in CBTC as a
networked control system
• Use of cognitive control to improve train control performance,
considering both train–ground communication and train control
The book includes many supporting illustrations and tables along with a valuable
set of references at the end of each chapter. With this book, researchers and
practitioners will be well-equipped to advance the research and development in
this important field.
