Positive Train Control (PTC) for Rail Transit
Transit rail vehicles are also able to utilize the EMTRAC system to enhance schedule efficiency and improve safety. In addition to signal priority, equipped agencies are able to implement key Positive Train Control (PTC) functions, including Overspeed Protection, Collision Avoidance, Wayside Worker Alerts, and Stop-Bar Overrun Alerts—using standard EMTRAC equipment.

Rail Worker Safety
Alert wayside workers, train operators, and monitoring personnel when rail vehicles are approaching worker positions.
The EMTRAC Personal Notification Unit, which is carried by wayside rail workers, alerts of approaching trains with ultra-bright LED flash, high-volume audible alarm, and/or vibration.
