CHINA RAILWAY initiated the onsite ATO (CTCS3+ATO train control system) test of high speed EMU on Beijing-Shenyang HSR on June 7th, a milestone for China railway’s independent innovation in core technology of intelligent HSR, and an indication that China continues to be the world’s leader in HSR holistic technology.
The comprehensive tests of key intelligent technology of high speed railway have being carried out in full swing on Liaoning Section of Beijing-Shenyang HSR which is under construction since this March. And the staged achievements had been made by the end of MAY, with 13 items of tests, out of 28 in total are completed, including special test for 350km/h Fuxing Long-formation EMU, test for atomized active control of pantograph of high speed EMU and test for metal sound barrier, etc. The achievements will be applied to the construction of Beijing-Zhangjiakou HSR and Bejing-Xiongan New Area intercity railway.
According to related department of CHINA RAILWAY, the onsite ATO (CTCS3+ATO train control system) test of high speed EMU, lasting until the end of September, constitutes an important part of key intelligent technology of high speed railway, which will provide massive data for ATO in both station and section, such as stop, start and running of high speed train. Up to now, the early preparations including technical document releasing, lab test, type test and test review have been completed.
The ATO test of intelligent HSR is an important move of CHINA RAILWAY to achieve the goal that “Railway shall take the lead in building China into a strong country in transportation” by fully implementing the strategic plan of the 19th CPC Congress to build China’s strength in science and technology and in transport and the guiding principles of the 19th Meeting of the Academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the 14th Meeting of the Academicians of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. It is of great significance to boost the development of China’s intelligent HSR and keep China the world’s leader in high speed railway technology.
