Automatic train control systems

Continuous monitoring of trains and safe signaling offers numerous advantages in train operations today. For driver-operated and driverless vehicles alike, automatic train control systems ensure maximum safety and efficiency in every case.

Conventional Automatic Train Protection (ATP)

Systems for automatic train control are valuable tools when it comes to optimizing punctuality and headway times. A wide range of different automatic functions assist the driver, transmit information and significantly enhance passenger convenience.

Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC)

Radio-based train control systems provide the signaling basis for attractive, reliable, and efficient mass-transit systems – whether in semiautomatic operation, operation under driver control, or driverless operation. The modular design also ensures maximum planning flexibility.
