  • Other foreign countries already apply ETCS LEVEL 2 in signaling systems. It provides added functions to control a train using wireless communication compared with ETCS LEVEL 1. Nowadays, the ETCS LEVEL 2 system is being applied on revenue services more and more frequently. Therefore, it is necessary to develop ETCS LEVEL 2 to apply in this country. The advanced technology of the ETCS LEVEL 2 system provides continuous control for train protection, and ATP function, by comparing discontinuous controls on ETCS LEVEL 1. ETCS LEVEL 2 is a better system model for improving passenger safety. This paper describes the design of an onboard speed profile for the ETCS LEVEL 2 system and it forecasts the future of ETCS.

  • Since early 1990s, several developed countries have applied the Electronic Toll Collection System (ETCS) to toll roads in order to solve traffic congestion and delay problems at toll plazas. For the successful operation of the ETCS, it is important to correctly forecast the ETCS using rate. In this study, it was conceived to develop a sophisticated demand forecasting model of the ETCS for toll roads in Changwon City The Binary Logit and neural network models were tested for the model considering 11 explaining variables. The best results in prediction accuracy and goodness-of-fit were obtained on the neural network model. However, because of the difficulty in predicting the 11 variables and its fitness in wide range, the Binary Logit model which considers three policy variables only is recommended as the model to forecast the ETCS using rate.

  • ERTMS/ETCS is a signalling and control system designed for interoperability between railway networks. In this paper, SysML was used for modeling of the ERTMS/ETCS trackside system. We used use case diagrams and sequence diagrams for requirements analysis and functional analysis. By doing this, we could show that main functions of the ERTMS/ETCS trackside can be described and verified based on scenarios.

  • This paper describes the design of RF link between RSE and OBU of ETCS and the analysis of the antenna beam pattern to get a proper communication area in the cross direction and traveling direction of lanes. This stage should be performed prior to determination of system requirements of ITS service based on active DSRC. This study is important and fundamental technical analysis to design and implement base station of ETCS.

  • Nowadays, the problem of ETCS terminal in becoming popular gradually is that there is no services except for ETC. Therefore, we need new system that provide many type of additional services at one-terminal. In this paper, we study the additory function of ETCS terminal to afford many type of the vehicle administration beside collection and provider of traffic information. We descrived the method of Eco-driving function beside to save fuel signing instant and mean fuel-efficiency, measurement of section fuel-efficiency on OLED and then brings out the best driving habit in people and to prevent dangerous at the wheel as diagnosing engine oil, cooling water, fan belt, the point of changing consumables, diagnoses to an overheated engine, charges on generator through ECU. The multi-services terminal consist of the vehicle diagnosis module base on OBD-II and ETCS terminal.

  • This paper proposes Electronic Credit Card(EMV) processing procedures for a credit payment method which can be applied to Korean ETCS(Electrical Toll Collection System). In Korea, Korea Highway Corporation services contactless ETCS's called by Hi-Pass and Touch-Pass system at present. These systems operate on a pre-paid payment method similar to electronic money. On the other side, a credit payment method based on credit card has an advantage which does not require pre-paid. The introduction of credit payment method to ETCS is in preparation. In this paper, we propose EMV processing methods based on a credit payment method which can be applied on ETCS.

  • This paper describes the design, fabrication, and measurement of a low side lobe antenna for RSE base station of the ETCS which is one of the ITS services. The antenna is installed on the gantry of road side and provides the wireless communication lint between vehicles and RSE. The required characteristics of ETCS base station antenna are low sidelobe and specific beam pattern by the road and install environment and installed place of OBU. To minimize the affects of multipath signal by reflection, Circular polarization is required. To get low sidelobe of antenna, array configuration and weighting factor by Taylor distribution in radiator elements are applied. The measured results of fabricated antenna are as follows; return loss of 130MHz by -10dB, an axial ratio of 2.6dB, and a gain of 17dBi. It is found that the measured beam patterns are similar to design results.

  • The subsystems of HSR train control system in each country has developed and operated till early 2000, however 2001/16/EC ERTMS is issued for inter-operability among European train control systems in 2001. So it is trend that ERTMS/ETCS has been applied to not only low-speed train system but high-speed train system over 300km/h in many countries of Europe. According to the government policies of the Honam HSR, metropolitan HSR and test lines, incoming on-board signal control system has been required caused by speed limit to 160km/h on the ground signal system. As ETCS-Level 1 system has applied in our railways from 2003, so our train control system has depended on foreign technologies. In this paper, we analyzed to localize train control system for being ready to protect foreign policies and obtaining core technologies of HSR train control system for instance ETCS-Level2.
