Positioning, the Next Generation

Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) is a wireless technology innovation that offers faster and less expensive installation of modern communications-based train control (CBTC) by eliminating much of the onboard and wayside equipment traditionally needed for advanced technology signaling. UWB was demonstrated by Pete Tomlin, MTA New York City Transit (NYCT) Vice President Network and Resignaling, just before his resignation from the agency. This article profiles the design, development and deployment of NYCT's UWB on the Flushing (7) Line. It discusses the key advantages and features of UWB as well as the NYCT's plans for its broader implementation.
