In the rail environment, the control system provides a network controller or signaller with the ability to operate and/or monitor the signalling system to:
- provide oversight of the status of the network, trains and other activities;
- control the position of points and establish train routes; and
- support protection systems for track maintenance and other work on track.
More advanced systems also provide a train planning function which can increase the operational efficiency of the railway.
The same principal is also implemented in other industries including roads, mining etc.
L2iQ has experience working closely with control system suppliers for the deployment of systems in the heavy rail, light rail and roads environment covering integration, installation, testing and commissioning activities.
