Safety Improvement With the ITCS

 

The system also permanently monitors that the train remains intact and stops it in case of a possible fractionation (as in the case of a car that separates or derails).
The system controls the speed of the train and monitors its location in real time and does not allow it to be in conflict with the routes authorized by the Controller.
The system knows the status of all the switches on the main line, detecting if there is one whose position does not correspond to the train route, if it is uncalibrated or if somebody is trying to manipulate it without authorization.
