Over the last decade, the railway industry has a great evolution about signaling system and there is more orientation from the standard railway signaling system to the communication-based signaling system day to day. Communications-based train control (CBTC) is a very flexible and useful approach to check train activity and track operation. This system basically build upon radio communication to transfer in time and correct train control information.
