Development of an energy efficient train traffic control system for saving electricity

In order to decrease railroad train energy consumption, an energy efficient railroad train traffic control system is in development. The control system reduces the running energy consumed by assigning a number of seconds of scheduled margin times to platforms at inter-stations. The system is most useful for urban trains. While attending to train delay, the control system tweaks the arrival and departure times at railroad stations, without passengers being aware that anything is different.
