Spanish term or phrase: puestos de adelantamiento y estacionamiento de trenes (PAET)
This is in a text on a high speed railway line. It refers to parking and overtaking signalling boxes, I imagine, but I wondered whether anyone knew the English lang. acronym/exact term.
Thanking you in advance.

Automatic Train Supervision (ATS) Control Units
Explanation:
OR:
ATS Control Units = Automatic Train Supervision Control Units

SEE also:
The Automatic Train Control (ATC) system is a system for automatically controlling all aspects of train operation. The three ATC components are:
- (ATP) Automatic Train Protection
- (ATO) Automatic Train Operation
- (ATS) Automatic Train Supervision

operational supervision, control and management of MRT system

on-train regulation of acceleration and operation speed
supervision and protection of train operation to ensure system safety

traffic control and signalling systems

Signalling system

Advanced Automatic Train Control (AATC) is a communication- based train control technology based on a sophisticated wireless data communication network that can track vehicle location, speed and direction.

Adtranz Signal's advanced system has been installed on the Copenhagen-Malmö line. This allows trains to switch from one signalling system to another at speeds of up to 200 km/h. Trains switch automatically between the automatic control systems (ATC) on the artificial island of Pepparholm. By re-using construction solutions, development costs have been kept to a minimum.



Context:
Extremely high requirements for safety for the new high speed trains mean a new market for software house Telelogic in Malmö. The first order came from ABB Signal who will develop advanced signalling systems with Telelogic's product.

AATC (Advanced Automatic Train Control) OR ATC (Automatic Control Systems)
