The drive for greater capacity
and safety


Demands on urban railway system capacity have never been greater. Just consider the trend of increasing urbanization coupled with climate change, environmental concerns and increasing urban mobility to understand why. Through the use of exact, real-time, train positioning information, wireless signaling provides a solution to the capacity challenges and avoids the need for expensive and disruptive civil engineering capital projects.
