TRAIN CONTROL SYSTEMS BASED ON COMMUNICATIONS AND RAILWAY TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Efficiency is one of the priorities of metro operators, due to financial cost and
environmental impact. The new signalling systems are being installed in new and
upgraded metro lines to increase transportation capacity.
The purpose of the current thesis is the detailed presentation of railway communication
systems in Urban Railway. More specifically, the document analyzes the CBTC while
also dealing with the analysis of the Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) which is
the first international standard for European communication.
Initially, the development of the operation of the aforementioned systems takes place,
while then the part of the communications that supports their operation is analyzed.
After the detailed presentation of the two systems, a comparative evaluation is made, as
well as a presentation of the new technologies that will improve their performance in the
Finally, a case study for Line 2 of the Athens Metro is presented where the technoeconomic analysis is carried out regarding the upgrade of the line with the railway
