APPRECIATION OF THE POTENTIALITIES AND LIMITATIONS OF COMPUTERIZED CONTROL OF LINEAR TRANSIT SYSTEMS

The paper considers the theory of safe stopping on a trackway and the problem of station delay accretion from the viewpoint of control requirements and performance. It is shown that existing control methods relying on trackside-sensing equipment only is limited in scope and requires on-board supplementation if substantial headway reduction is to be achieved. A control equation is suggested similar to that used in practice by car-drivers which should allow this reduction to be achieved using existing technology.
