As mentioned, you will be working on the Toowoomba Tunnel Signalling System. Here is what you need to know about it:


So what is ATMS?

ATMS stands for the Advanced Train Management System. It is designed to streamline communication between different parts of the entire rail network (the network control centre, the driver, the train and the tracks).

It allows for train movements through routes to be controlled automatically as well as improving how quickly the network control centre and driver can communicate to control train movements.

This video by Inland Rail gives an introduction to what ATMS is and how it works.


The ATMS is made up of these five components.


Each component has several hardware and software technologies that allow the ATMS to function smoothly.

Your first activity

Head to page 3 of your Memobook for your first task, which will take you through the different components of ATMS and how they interact with rail infrastructure.


Once you've done that, you're ready to take it to the next level with your project.
