So that trains can be run in a satisfactory manner, it is necessary to have at various operating levels information that must be all the more adequate, accurate and quickly available as the number and speed of trains increase. The relatively new tool that can meet these requirements is known as the train movement monitoring system. The systems installed in Versailles-Chantiers box and on Paris-North suburban lines have been described in previous articles. This article synthesizes the definition, the purpose and the general principles of monitoring train movements. It will be followed by other articles describing the systems installed on Paris-East and Paris-North suburban lines as well as on the Left Bank link between Paris-Austerlitz and Versailles-Chantiers.
