Recently, system innovation has been accomplished with the application of relative technologies in various fields in accordance with the development of ICT(Information & Communication Technology), and the railway field is no exception also. Especially, it is expected that the significance and effect of study to plan the enhancement in safety and operational efficiency of train operation by converging train control fields into ICT will be very great. In this paper, we explained a study on development of the new concept on-board centered train control system through convergence of ICT into train control field as the relative study currently under progress in Korea.
