According to the operational principle and functional requirements of testing platform for CBTC system, this paper focuses on the research and design of vehicle simulation subsystem of this testing platform. First of all, through the analysis of the functions of the CBTC testing platform, the design scheme of the vehicle simulation subsystem is completed. Then, under the PowerPC hardware platform and software platform based on embedded Linux operating system, the hardware design of the unit adapter and the development process of BSP driver between the vehicle subsystem and the CBTC testing platform are introduced in detail. Finally, the vehicle simulation subsystem is realized by establishing the vehicle dynamic model and developing the master computer. The subsystem is connected to the CBTC testing platform, and multiple actual line data and different EMU data are used for testing, which verifies the feasibility and versatility of the system.
