AN AUTOMATIC OPERATING SYSTEM FOR THE RHINE-RUHR URBAN RAIL SYSTEM

AUTOMATISCHES BETRIEBSFUEHRUNGSSYSTEM DER STADTBAHN RHEIN-RUHR

The automatic operating system of the Rhine-Ruhr railway is part of an integrated technical operating system for extensive automation of the many functions of a rapid transit railway. Commencing with a strictly hierarchical classification of the overall function according to the disposition of the operations, the running of the operation, operational safety and the appropriate central functions, the system is described together with that of the hierarchically classified system of process computers for carrying out especially important sub-functions. These components of the system provide the automation for operating signal boxes and the provision of information on the operational situation for the supervision and control of the rail traffic. In addition they support the central station supervision and provide passengers there with information. Following the initial realisation of the system on the urban railway model stretch Essen-Mulheim the concept of the system extended since will also include central remote control of signals using data-processing technology. To fulfil this task there are, in view of the safety problems related to this, engineering problems of a special type which have to be overcome.
