What is the Advanced Train Management System?
The Advanced Train Management System – or ATMS – has been developed specifically for Australian conditions by ARTC and technology partner Lockheed Martin.
The system is certified and now in operation as the primary safe working system between Port Augusta and Whyalla, South Australia. The next section for ATMS deployment will be Port Augusta to Kalgoorlie from 2021 – with initial works underway.
ATMS is a digital train management solution, with real-time monitoring of trains with GPS and mobile technology making trains ‘smart’.
With a simplified train control and network operating system, ATMS is easier and more efficient for train drivers and network controllers to use, delivers vast safety improvements and reduces operational and maintenance costs.
ATMS brings ARTC’s train control into the digital age, upgrading the capabilities of the Australian rail network and improving the safety, capacity and productivity for the entire supply chain.
How does ATMS work?
ATMS connects the driver in the cab to ARTC Network Control, integrating four key components into one operating system:
- Network Control System
- Communications System
ATMS key features
ATMS introduces a range of features that enhance the safety, efficiency and productivity of Australian rail operations.
Why ATMS will benefit Australia’s supply chain
Alongside an increase in safety, ATMS will also improve network reliability and resilience, ensuring our customers run on time, and safely.
As we deploy this innovative solution on a larger scale, it will increase the productivity of Australia’s freight rail network and further build rail’s role as the mode of choice in the national logistics chain.
