The test centre will include hardware similar to the rest of the system, including WESTRACE MKII interlocking, trackside TRAINGUARD Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) System and radio network equipment, the trainborne TRAINGUARD CBTC System and the RAIL9000 Automatic Train Supervision (ATS) System.
The test centre with the digital twin will be set up in two stages. The first will include ATS simulation environment and the second will include the full test environment: CBTC, interlocking, communications and trackside elements.
Siemens Mobility is also providing electrification for two other mass transit projects: Circle Line Stage 6 and North East Line extension. The company has a other digital lab in the city-state working on autonomous driving research with partner CETRAN.
