Communications and Train Control

TTCI is leading key industry initiatives related to long-term sustainability of Positive Train Control (PTC), focusing on reducing train delay associated with the technology. This includes an analysis of the system reliability, availability, and maintainability (RAM), which will be expanded in 2018 to develop more rigorous RAM growth plans. The benefit of this will be increased PTC system uptime and reduced operational impact. In 2017, TTCI also continued developing standards for the evolution of train control, leveraging current PTC infrastructure while supporting higher reliability and line capacity, and designing a system for Monitoring and Analysis of the Integrated Network (MAIN) to support interoperable maintenance and troubleshooting.
