RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEM SIMULATION WITH INTERACTIVE GRAPHICS DISPLAY

A MATHEMATICAL MODEL OF A RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEM HAS BEEN DEVELOPED. THE MODEL EMPLOYS COMPUTER TECHNIQUES TO SIMULATE THE PHYSICAL SYSTEM. TO FURTHER ENHANCE THE RESULTS AND GAIN MANAGEMENT CONFIDENCE IN THE RELIABILITY AND VALIDITY OF THE DESIGN OF THE MODEL, A TV-LIKE DISPLAY OF THE COMPUTER RESULTS ENABLES THE VIEWER TO "SEE" THE PERFORMANCE OF THE MODEL AS IT HAPPENS. THE RESULTS DISPLAYED THUS INCLUDE: THE TRACK LAYOUT, TIME (SIMULATION), TRAIN POSITION ON THE TRACK, AND THE NUMBER OF PASSENGERS RIDING ON EACH TRAIN AND WAITING AT EACH PLATFORM OR STATION. THE COMPUTER PRINTOUT IS LIMITED TO SUMMARY TYPE DATA, RELYING ON THE DISPLAY FOR DETAILED EVALUATION AND ANALYSIS. /AUTHOR/
