Abstract (en)

In the control of a conventional interlocking device and platform screen door, even when a train is actually stopped, the stop of the train cannot be detected until a predetermined allowance time elapses, so that in spite of the fact that a preceding train is stopped, a route for a succeeding train cannot be secured, and thereby the succeeding train is delayed more than needed. A train stop detection system according to the present invention is featured by including: a track circuit 20 which detects that a train is present in a specific section; a non-contact type sensor 3 which detects the speed of the train; a stop detection device which detects the stop of the train on the basis of a train occupancy signal output from the track circuit and the train speed detected by the sensor, and which generates a stop detection signal; and an interlocking device which controls a ground facility on the basis of the stop detection signal, and is featured in that the sensor is positioned before a predetermined train stop position in the train travel direction and is arranged so as to be close to the train.
