MICROPROCESSOR CONTROL OF REMOTE LOCOMOTIVES

A microprocessor-based system has been developed for the remote control of sugar cane locomotives. The system is used to control an unmanned locomotive near the rear of the train from a manned unit at the head of the train. The development work consisted mainly of correctly interpreting the ill-defined functional and environmental requirements, and then effectively applying existing microprocessor technology to produce the satisfactory working system described here.
