Status:
IEEE Std 1474.1-2004
CBTC Performance & Functional Requirements is now a published standard, available for purchase from the IEEE On-Line Store.
  This is a revision of the 1999 publication and now includes automatic train operation.

IEEE Std 1474.2-2003

Standard for User Interface Requirements
in CBTC is now a published standard, available for purchase from the IEEE On-Line Store

IEEE P1474.3
Recommended Practice for Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) System Design and Functional Allocation is now in ballot. 

Upcoming Meetings:
Please advise the chair if you plan to attend

Meetings are announced by email from the chair to the mailing list.  Please contact the chair to be added to the list.


IEEE Std 1474.1-2004, IEEE Standard Method for CBTC Performance and Functional Requirements

Scope:
This standard establishes a set of performance and functional requirements necessary for enhancing performance, availability, operations, and train protection using a CBTC system.

Purpose:
There are currently no independent standards defining the performance and functional requirements to be satisfied by CBTC systems. This standard will enhance performance, availability, operations, and train protection, and will facilitate new CBTC applications.

IEEE Std 1474.2-2003, IEEE Standard for User Interface Requirements in CBTC


Scope:

This standard establishes user interface requirements in CBTC systems.


Purpose:
This standard will provide for consistent user interfaces that take advantage of the characteristics of CBTC systems to enhance service effectiveness of a rail transit system.

IEEE P1474.3, IEEE Recommended Practice for Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) System Design and Functional Allocation

Scope:

This recommended practice establishes a preferred system design and functional allocation for CBTC systems.


Purpose:
The purpose of this recommended practice is to define a preferred CBTC system design/system architecture to achieve the CBTC performance and functional requirements of IEEE Std. 1474.1-2004, and to allocate functions to the major CBTC subsystems.
