In this paper, we propose approaches for connection the vision based monitoring system with railway signal for automatically train emergency stop. The vision based monitoring system detects possible accidents in railway platform area by using multiple cameras and sensors, and immediately reports the detection results with alarm message to the station and train. However, train stop by manual operation has a limit to emergency stop because of operator's reaction time. Therefore, a connection mechanism is needed to link the vision based monitoring system with railway signal system. In the paper, we propose approaches for connection with train onboard and wayside signal systems.
