Wang Zhuo and Jia Li-min


Research on RITS universal technology platform is to realize the effective management, share spatial data and non-spatial data, and change the situation of “information lonely island” in the existing railway information system. Universal technology platform is composed of the train positioning system, the communication system, railway information sharing platform and railway basic geography database. The key technologies involved in RITS universal technology platform include train position technology, communication technology, data sharing and comprehensive technology, and railway geographic information system etc. Finally the comprehensive safety monitoring system of the Chinese Qinghai-Tibet Railway is introduced as an example.
