Before introducing high speed train, train signal system was operated passively depending on a driver by signal lamp display. Now it is changing to onboard signaling system because of train speed increased(conventional track is 230km/h, high speed track is 380km/h), high speed. low speed freight train operation mixed, operation for high speed train in conventional track and dense operation. ie. ETCS(European Train Control System) Level 1 is introducing. Also, in case of high speed train, the train control system of France was introduced and has operated from 2004, now we have a difficulty for rising speed more than 300km/h because of commercial operation speed limited as 300km/h. Therefore, it need to establish the train control technique according to trackside surroundings and develope standard system like European ERTMS/ETCS, China CTCS(Chinese Train Control System), Japan D-ATC(Digital Automatic Train Control). In this paper, we derive the systematization method for Korea train technique by network-oriented, information-oriented, intelligence-oriented and combination-oriented corresponding train development direction. Proposed method has a merit to prevent cross by mixed operation with existing system and improvement after validity demonstration and system development and supply train system to meet user requirement in exporting.
