Efficient mass transit systems are vital for improving passenger mobility and are reliant on the performance of the automatic train control (ATC) system deployed. With increasing automation, the responsibility for operations management is passing from the driver and operator to the system.
Trainguard MT is the Siemens answer to meeting the requirements of booming megacities' transportation needs and offers a new standard of automation at different levels. Trainguard MT is a modern modular communication-based automatic train control system which complies with ETCS. It can be upgraded from supervised operation via semi-automation to an unattended, driverless system.
The major advantages of a modern ATC system using Trainguard MT are:
System performance including availability
Cost-effectiveness maintainability upgradability
Flexible refurbishment and migration solutions
