APPLICATION OF ATC TO BUSY LINES WITH COMMUTER TRAIN TRAFFIC

The JNR has adopted the ATC system for the Shinkansen line to assure the safety of trains at high speed. On almost all other lines the ATS system has been used. But lately the train safety system has been reviewed and improved. In a selection process, any of three systems can be adopted, depending on the importance of the lines and their traffic density. The systems are the ATC, the new ATS with speed sensing, and the existing ATS. The JNR is in the process of increasing the use of ATC on lines with heavy traffic that serve major cities.
