AUTOMATIC TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEM APPLIED TO URBAN ELECTRIC TRANSPORT

In the cities of the USSR, electric transport (tram, trolleybus) is one of the principal means of passenger transportation. The control of its functioning is complicated by a number of factors such as the existence of tram tracks, a contact wire network, etc. The synthesis of the control system is performed on the basis of the object of control analysis, including: passenger flows, electric vehicles, route networks. From the point of view of its functioning the automated traffic control system solves problems of two types: 1. Distribution by routes of limited resources of vehicles and drawing up of their service timetables; 2. Operational control of vehicles movement on routes, elaboration of recommendations for the operator in case of service disturbances and communication of the operator's orders to vehicle drivers. The matter under discussion is the control of vehicles running according to A timetable or to service schedules, that is according to intervals between vehicles. As a criterion for the choice of one or another method a minimum passenger waiting time is taken. In conclusion certain considerations of the economic efficiency of the system are given.
