Real-time ATO reconfiguration for operational stability

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Alexei Iliasov, Dr Ilya Lopatkin, Ana Mihut, Professor Alexander RomanovskyORCiD



This paper briefy describes a technique for improving capacity and operational stability of busy mainline junctions and stations. The technique, called the SafeCap advisory system, employs a mixture of existing train monitoring and control technologies to introduce an advisory control layeron top of fixed-block signalling. We present the main design principles and illustrate the advantages of the proposed solution with some experiments conducted in a train simulation toolkit.
