INFORMATION FLOW IN THE BART CONTROL COMPUTER SYSTEM

The control system for San Francisco's Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) consists of several levels of control: a primary level operated by equipment at each passenger station and a secondary level accomplished by the central computer control system. This paper describes the control capabilities of each level of control and the ways in which the two work together to control and optimize the movement of trains on the system.
