Abstract

We have newly developed a device to transmit 40-bit digital information from trains to the ground at low costs. This equipment uses the ATS systems that has been introduced into all JR lines. Adding an information transmission function to ATS on-board equipment, we have verified through field examinations that high quality information transmission is possible without influencing the present function of ATS. In this paper, we describe the concept of an intelligent signalling system using this equipment. 1 Introduction On Sinkansen lines, the traffic is controlled by the Computer aided Traffic Control (COMTRAC) system, together with route control and passenger information by the train numbers transmitted from train
