This training is aimed at providing an overview of CBTC structure and functions, how it is operated and some possible future evolutions.
Topics to be discussed:

  • History of automatic metros
  • Performance of best CBTC systems
  • Definitions and standards
  • How it works: functions and sub-systems
  • The future

After this course, you will be able to

  • Define what is the CBTC and how it is structured
  • Explain the role of the CBTC in railway operations
