THE CHALLENGE Today more and more complex Metro Rail Systems, in various grades of automation (GoA) are in planning, under construction and getting operational. Operators are requested to assure in time safety passenger transport and to achieve expected economical result and protect the environment. Short train tact rates and an increasing number of passengers, high speed operation are among the drivers of the development and introduction of high complex and automated trains, networked on-boardvehicle systems and communication based train control, signalling, safety, protection and control systems to ensure safe and punctual services. Most systems are to be handled and monitored by human operators whose capabilities are one of the key factors to safety operation and economic success. In order to ensure safe and secure daily operation an extensive individualized training is required. The metro train drivers / traffic controllers and operators capabilities are to be intensively trained, maintained and assessed on a regular, standardised basis. This may be accomplished using real equipment and occupying real track lines or as we recommend by the means of synthetic training media capable of simulating the train and its subsystems, specific metro lines and their railway / route infrastructure or the entire network of the real world metro operation (e.g. full mission simulators in combination with desk-type simulators and traffic control simulator and maintenance simulation modules / simulators & CBT).
