This special volume on Advanced Train Control Systems (ATCS) consists of selected papers from the highly successful COMPRAIL conference series on railways and other transit systems.
Advanced Train Control Systems are playing an important role in improving the efficiency and safety of train operation, acting as their "brains and nerves." Computer-based ATCS's make railways more reliable and safer. Normally, these systems consist of four parts: the central control system; the station control systems and wayside systems; the on-board control systems; and the communication network, including mobile communication. From the point of view of the whole lifecycle, an ATCS includes design and development; re-design for a special line application; simulation verification and testing; and safety assessment of the system and subsystems. These concepts are known to those who are familiar with typical ATCS such as ETCS, CTCS for main line railways and CBTC for transit systems.
