A COMPUTER-BASED SYSTEM FOR INTERLOCKING CONTROL
In the Amsterdam and Utrecht stations, a computer system will be used as a means to control local and remote interlockings. This will include such functions as train identification (using scheduled train sequences), train describer (on standard peripheral crt devices), train route optimization (including conflict resolution in case of slight disturbances), route control, control of platform indicators, train reporting, statistics, field control of a part of shunting movements, and man-machine communications. After some introductory remarks, the paper describes design philosophy, system configuration (including interface equipment) and in a more detailed manner the software for route optimization and conflict resolution.
