Remotely Monitoring Mission Critical Positive Train Control Networks

Source: Anritsu Company

Positive Train Control (PTC) is an advanced communications system to minimize train accidents by automatically controlling train activity. This includes real-time monitoring of static and dynamic conditions that require the train to slow or stop. The On Board Computer (OBC) monitors these conditions, and in the event of an improper response from the engineer, the OBC takes control and slows or stops the train within a safe braking distance from the restriction.
