Fail-safe LAN for train control systems K. Kubota', M.Shibuya', S. Nishida^, J. Arai^ * CentralJapan Railway Co., Japan. ^Kyosan Electric Manufacturing Co. Ltd, Japan. *The Nippon Signal Co. Ltd, Japan. Abstract A LAN (Local Area Network) applied to a train control system must absolutely be stable, precise, and valid in its inherent data transmission functions. Other facilities required include self-diagnostics for transmission conditions, easy status monitoring, and quick analysis of and recovery from faults and emergencies. Recently, as new train control systems for the Tokaido Shinkansen have been constructed, a dedicated fail-safe transmission system was developed and incorporated, with innovate features that could not be achieved with a general- purpose transmission system. 1 Introduction The Train Control System of Tokaido Shinkansen (552.6 km between Tokyo and Osaka) consists of three sub-system, Automatic Train Protection(ATP), Electronic Interl
