Automatic signalling in railways

Automatic signalling systems, such as computer and relay-based interlocking solutions, automatic train protection and operation systems, rolling stock diagnostics, and speed control technologies, increase the safety and efficiency of railway assets. 

Communication-based train control (CBTC) systems increase capacity and reduce headways by enabling seamless operations in driver, driverless or completely unattended train operation modes. 

Automated systems integrate human-machine interface and bi-directional radio communication capabilities for autonomous monitoring and control of rolling stock and high system availability for railway operators
