The ever increasing volume of rail traffic demands an increase in capacity, which can only be met with higher traffic speeds and greater traffic density. Traffic control is essentially vehicle and track control and should therefore be automated to meet the demand. Control technologies using special circuit elements should not be employed. The aim should be to use standard, universally applicable circuit elements, as for example, large scale integrated circuits. Failure should be detected and corrected by software techniques tht ensure the fail-safe principle. Modified and improved existing systems using these techniques should be constructed on a building block principle and capable of change and expansion to enable any future system modification to be integrated.
