This designated quantity on complex teach keep an eye on platforms (ATCS) involves chosen papers from the hugely profitable COMPRAIL convention sequence on railways and different transit structures. complicated educate keep an eye on platforms are taking part in a big position in enhancing the potency and defense of teach operation, performing as their "brains and nerves." Computer-based ATCS's make railways extra trustworthy and more secure. ordinarily, those structures encompass 4 elements: the vital regulate procedure; the station keep an eye on structures and wayside platforms; the on-board regulate structures; and the verbal exchange community, together with cellular communique. From the perspective of the total lifecycle, an ATCS comprises layout and improvement; re-design for a unique line program; simulation verification and trying out; and defense review of the process and subsystems. those techniques are identified to people who are accustomed to regular ATCS equivalent to ETCS, CTCS for major line railways and CBTC for transit platforms.

At the first application, we have decided to introduce the developed system as a substitute system which will realize safer substitute block operation. In the future, the system will become major train protection system of the Shinkansen lines. , Digital automatic train control system for the Shinkansen lines of East Japan Railway Company. COMPRAIL 2002, 2002. , The improvement of Shinkansen transportation service with using the advanced train control system. International Symposium on Speed-up Service Technology for Railway and Maglev Systems 2003 (STECH’03), 2003.

2) When a train is within a station zone, the train detection information from track circuits is used. After that the ground-side train protection equipment generates the distanceto-go information in accordance with the trains’ location. Finally the ground equipment sends the distance-to-go information to the trains with the LCX cable independent of trains’ location. Applying the developed technology, it is expected that track circuits outside switch stations become unnecessary for train separation control.

5 The migration strategy The major challenge when re-signaling lines in revenue service lies in the validation of the system – in the specific case of Line 1, the OCC and the CBTC onboard equipment – without impairing the quality of service offered to passengers during daily operation and compromising safety. A fundamental feature of this solution is therefore the ability to be operated in “shadow mode”, whereby the system receives and sends all necessary information as if under CBTC control, but without any actual outputs being activated.
