Ultra Wide Band (UWB) is based on the transmission of very short pulses with relatively low energy. This technology may see increased use in the wireless communications and sensing application. Having the available bandwidth of 7.5 GHz and the minimum signal bandwidth of 500 MHz, UWB systems can be divided into two groups: impulse communication system and multi-band system. In multi-band, the spectrum is divided into several subbands. In this paper, we propose this technique for subway transport systems; especially for communication between trains or train-infrastructure. So, the main purpose of this paper is to make use of the original mathematical tools called orthogonal functions to allow a multi-user communication system for multi-band UWB transmission. The BER values will be calculated and analyzed using computer simulations in the presence of multi-user interference, in order to evaluate the performances of the proposed system. These BER values will be given for two cases: the users in the same subband and a single user per subband. We will show that the proposed orthogonal waveforms give good performances in terms of BER and are able to reduce multi-user interference. The proposed method has many potentials advantages in terms of complexity and implementation.
