TST Invited to the 17th Annual City-Rail Summit

On March 7, 2024, the 17th Annual City-Rail Summit was successfully held in Shanghai, with the theme of “How to Achieve High-Quality Development of Rail Transit and Empower Urban Development with Rail Transit”. The summit is guided by the Technical Professional Committee for Rail Transit Safety under the China Communications and Transportation Association, hosted by the Scientific Technical Committee under the Shanghai Municipal Transportation Commission, and supported by the Technical Center of Shanghai Shentong Metro Group Co., Ltd. and the Railway (Rail) Branch of Jiangsu Comprehensive Transportation Society. Li Bin, Secretary General of the Scientific Technical Committee under the Shanghai Municipal Transportation Commission, and Yu Qiang, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Jiangsu Comprehensive Transportation Society, delivered speeches at the opening ceremony.



During the special session on Urban Rail Innovation, Dr. Gao Xiang, Director of TST Technical Center, delivered a speech titled “Sustainable Urban Rail Signalling System”. He started with the status quo of rail transit operation and introduced the goal of a sustainable urban rail signalling system: controllable cost during service life; efficient operation, support for consolidated resource allocation; scalability, upgradability, and ease of renovation.



TSTCBTC®3.0 is a new generation signalling system developed independently by TST based on this sustainable mindset, which intends to hit the target of a sustainable signalling system via small integrated hardware, streamlined trackside equipment, refined control of traveling resources, on-board network and equipment convergence, platform door control convergence, energy-saving control, and scalable and evolvable network.


The urban rail signalling system boasting sustainable development technology not only enables safer, more convenient, economic, efficient and green operation of a rail signalling system, but provides more advanced solutions with less impact on operation for signalling system upgrading and renovation.
