CBTC Simulation Platform Design and Study


In order to train and test the functionality of the CBTC signal system, this paper designs simulation platform’s architecture and function module based on the CBTC principle firstly. Then, it detailedly discusses the main content and key algorithms about train module and trackside module. Finally, it builds CBTC simulation test platform, used for training of rail transit signal related specialized student and detecting the main function of actual CBTC system based on Shanghai Metro Line 9.
