Communication-Based Train Control (CBTC) system is an automated train control system using bidirectional train-ground communications to ensure the safe operation of rail vehicles. The interference from Wi-Fi signals to the CBTC signals has significant impacts on the train control performance. Most of previous works use data from simulation platform. This paper proposes a method to test the Wi-Fi interference to the Communication Based Train Control(CBTC) systems. The test is made mainly based on real subway, and supplemented by laboratory simulation platform.
