Chinese Train Control System


Chinese Train Control System

The Chinese Train Control System (CTCS) is a train control system used on railway lines in People's Republic of China. CTCS is similar to the European Train Control System (ETCS).[1]

It has two subsystems: ground subsystem and onboard subsystem. The ground subsystem includes responder, track circuit, wireless communication network (GSM-R), and Radio Block Center (RBC). The onboard subsystem includes onboard devices and onboard wireless module.

CTCS has several levels:

Levels 2, 3, and 4 are back-compatible with lower levels.
