In order to overcome the problems existing in the design and field testing of the Train’s Auxiliary Operation System (TAOS), such as a complex environment, great losses, low efficiency and high risks, this paper describes an integrated driving simulation system for the high-speed train based on High Level Architecture (HLA). The simulation system consists of several simulation modules, including a signal system, traction power supply, train operation simulation and the actual driver control interface device equipped with virtual scene display. The train’s running environment is simulated and implemented in the signal simulation module and traction power supply simulation module. The train’s on-board equipment is simulated in the train operation simulation module. The driver control device offers the display interface of TAOS. As the simulator is composed of multiple complex sub-modules, the simulation step is different from each other. To test the efficiency of the train’s auxiliary operation system, the whole system’s real-time performance is very important. So the distributed simulation platform based on HLA is built. And the sub-modules are integrated based on RTI (Run-Time Infrastructure). Data transmission between the subsystems is also introduced in this paper.
