Abstract

Radio Based Cab Signaling (RBCS) is a kind of device that transmits cab signaling and train control information by means of radio. It consists of two parts: the station control equipment and the onboard equipment. The station control equipment collects the information generated by station interlocking, and then transmits the information by radio to the onboard equipment which displays the information to the driver and at the same time sends it to the onboard ATP equipment. RBCS can use either a commercial radio data transceiver or a GSMR network as the transmission media. The response time of RBCS is defined as the time period from the generation and transmission of the cab signal by the station control equipment, to the display of the information
