Title (EN) METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR WIRELESS TRAIN COMMUNICATIONS
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET SYSTÈMES DE COMMUNICATIONS SANS FIL DE TRAINS
Abstract:
(EN) A plurality of wayside communication units may be configured for placement on or near path of trains. Each wayside communication unit may include a power component configured for generating and/or obtaining power for powering components of the wayside communication unit; a communication component configured for transmitting and/or receiving wireless signals; and one or more circuits that process signals and data, and perform one or more applications or functions relating to operations of the wayside communication unit. Each wayside communication unit may be configured to communicate signals and/or messages with one or more local control devices within a legacy train control system, and with each train-based device that moves within communication range of the wayside communication unit. The legacy train control systems may include communication-based train control (CBTC) based systems. The wayside communication units may be configured for utilizing ultra-wideband (UWB) based communications.
(FR) La présente invention porte sur une pluralité d'unités de communication en bordure de voie qui peuvent être conçues pour être placées sur un trajet de trains ou à proximité de ce dernier. Chaque unité de communication en bordure de voie peut comprendre un composant d'alimentation configuré pour produire et/ou obtenir de l'énergie afin d'alimenter des composants de l'unité de communication en bordure de voie ; un composant de communication configuré pour émettre et/ou recevoir des signaux sans fil ; et un ou plusieurs circuits qui traitent des signaux et des données, et qui exécutent une ou plusieurs applications ou fonctions se rapportant à des opérations de l'unité de communication en bordure de voie. Chaque unité de communication en bordure de voie peut être configurée pour communiquer des signaux et/ou des messages à un ou plusieurs dispositifs de commande locaux dans un système de commande de train existant, et à chaque dispositif embarqué dans un train qui se déplace dans la plage de communication de l'unité de communication en bordure de voie. Les systèmes de commande de train existants peuvent comprendre des systèmes reposant sur une commande de trains fondée sur les communications (CBTC). Les unités de communication en bordure de voie peuvent être configurées pour utiliser des communications à bande ultralarge (UWB).
