Siemens Mobility has been awarded a contract by the Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA) to design and establish a simulation center for the Downtown Line’s (DTL) signalling system. The center will enable in-depth and faster technical analysis surrounding signalling-related incidents, enhance testing of new signalling features and system functionalities before deployment as well as increase capabilities for training LTA and the operator’s technical staff.
DTL currently uses Siemens Mobility’s signalling system and automatic train operations. The test center will be established in two stages and completed by end-2020. The first will include ATS simulation environment and the second will include the full test environment: CBTC, interlocking, communications and trackside elements.
