Running capacity strengthening program

 Running capacity strengthening program

Operation of an advanced maintenance system

Joint research on building a mutually beneficial network of technology cooperation to secure state-of-the-art technologies

Analysis of the cause of rolling stock failures and development of preventive measures against failures

Intensive management of failure-prone core parts and development of preventive measures

State-of-the-art safety equipment for high-speed rolling stock

  • Equipment for monitoring the driving status of the KTX
  • State-of-the-art three-fold braking device: regenerative braking, rheostatic braking, and friction braking

Facility safety

Establishment of a 24-hour comprehensive monitoring and control system to protect main facilities

  • Installment of infrared cameras with a 10x zoom in tunnels and bridges (156 cameras in 56 locations)
  • Installment of a fence alarm system in high-risk areas (residential and mountains areas)

Realization of the “zero disaster” goal by establishing a scientific safety management system

  • Earthquake detection and automatic rainfall alarm system
  • Automatic flood-level alert system for railroad bridges
  • Reinforcement of rail track section and establishment of a monitoring system

Safety enhancement by modernizing of facility maintenance equipment

  • Track inspection car, electrified track test car, track stabilization equipment car, turnout compactor, etc.

Establishment and operation of the Disaster Response Center

State-of-the-art safety facilities for high-speed railways

  • Weather monitoring device, dragging equipment, rail temperature detector, rail-axle temperature detector, and obstacle/falling stones detector

Electrical safety

Establishment of a centralized control system for the nationwide rail networks based on an advanced rail traffic control system

Electricity Safety

A remote control system based on the Automatic Train Control (ATC)

The ATC is the equipment that displays speed limits by continuously transmitting speed information necessary for safe train operation via rail and that reduces train speed reduction automatically when the speed limit is exceeded.

Automatic Train Protection (ATP) System

The ATP system is a train operation control system where an on-board computer detects train speed and automatically reduces/controls the speed when the speed limit is exceeded.

Moving Block System (MBS)

The MBS is a metro train operation control system that adjusts the location and speed of a train and the distance between trains by using wireless communications

A failure prediction system for electrical facilities

Establishing Moving Block System (MBS)
