Research Platforms

National-level Platforms

1. National Key Laboratory

(National Key Laboratory of Rail Transit Control and Safety)

The establishment of the laboratory is closely connected with the long-term development and society needs of state rail traffic, adhering to the research concept of “integrating the background on the application of fundamental theory research, combining with the demands of the formation of key technologies”.


2.National Engineering Research Center

(National Engineering Research Center for Rail Transit Operation Control System)

The Center is jointly supported by National Development and Reform Commission, China Railway Corporation and Ministry of Education. For train control systems of high speed railway, urban rail transit and magnetic suspended railway, the Center takes up the following strategic missions: to fulfill the requirement of safe and efficient operation for rail transit system, the Center carries the research on the key  technology and integration of systems, and accelerates innovations to be engineered and industrial. The Center has been involved in making and perfecting the national standards for operation and control system. An appropriate comprehensive testing and verification platform has been established by the center. The Center continuously provides the industry with sophisticated technology and equipment to improve the competitiveness of our national control system, and forms the key technology chain to meet the development needs of rail transit system in China, as well as builds a base for training engineer and manager with high level, high-quality, innovative ability.


3.National Engineering Laboratory

National Engineering Laboratory for Internet Interconnection Equipment of the Next Generation

NEL is focused on the cutting-edge research on the mechanisms, theory, and key technologies of future intelligent networks, mobile internet and sensor networks (Internet of Things). It has invented the “Identifier-based Universal Network Architecture” (a brand new future Internet architecture), and built the first IPv6 router in China. Several network devices have been widely deployed in universities, corporations and research institutes, and have been won the first-class technological invention award from Ministry of Education.
