Rail-certified computers - Signalling control systems

Transport for London (TfL) runs the day-to-day operation of the Capital’s public transport network. The Bakerloo Line control system on the Underground needed to be replaced by a modern equivalent to address obsolescence issues.

This involved the replacement of central computers with modern hardware. The new hardware will be used as the central hub of a network of site and communication computers, with its functions including indicating the current state of signalling, the live position of trains and general service data.
