Using ATIS Realizing Detection of Coupling Distance

Chinese railway is the innovator in applying RFID technology in the field of managing rolling stock information by inventing ATIS. This unmatched system could provide railroad extra information for train organization and process control. This paper is to discuss the feasibility of applying this advanced technology in hump yard automation solution. Study results show that utilizing ATIS can improve the humping performance considerably and increases productivity significantly. It encourages more research to be proposed in order to take full advantage of this unique system.
