Abstract

This paper investigates a train control system design which can reduce the amount of signalling equipment required in a station. In this system, an on-board train positioning device detects the train position by using RFID tags on the sleeper. On-board interlocking equipment then commands the point machines in the closed-off block section in which the train is detected. This control mechanism operates using radio-communication. This system could therefore help reduce the amount of signalling equipment required in stations, such as wayside signals, interlocking machines and track circuits. In this paper, the authors report on the specifications of the system and on results from receiving tests with the RFID tag.
