Abstract

Intelligent railway signaling system in the 2T* century BNing Department of Control Engineering School of Electronic and Information Engineering Northern Jiaotong University, Beijing 100044, P.R.China Abstract In modern society, railway has been generally recognized to be a safe, comfortable, economical, less-energy consumption and favorable environment transport means on lands. Railway signaling system is still one of the core parts in railway network in the aspect of ensuring train operation safety and raising train operation efficiency. However, traditional railway signaling can not meet the requirements of modern train operation any more, particularly for high-speed passenger trains. The concept and definition of intelligent railway signaling system (IRSS) is put forward in the paper. Control and management are integrated in IRSS, based on necessary information system that is related to modern telecommunication system including mobile data communication, compute
