Communications Based Train Control
Communications Based Train Control (CBTC) is the benchmark for signalling on urban rail networks. It is deployed on most new metros or LRTs and it is increasingly used for resignalling on existing networks. CBTC is attractive because it provides higher capacity, safety and reliability than conventional signalling systems.
Cities including London, Paris, New York or Singapore are already using SelTrac™ to boost capacity and performance of their metro networks.
SelTrac™ G8 – the eighth and latest generation CBTC solution.
Benefits of the SelTrac™ G8 system include flexibility and evolution capabilities, relying on the latest technologies to significantly reduce installation and lifecycle costs, while maintaining passenger safety.
