RESEARCH EFFORT SHIFTS FROM HARDWARE TO CYBERNETICS

The train and traffic control areas are seen as the targets where future research can have the most impact. The research initiative of the 1960s demonstrated that railways are far from the limits of development; improvements which cybernetics can bring in capacity and productivity will assure British Railways a vital role well into the next century. The author warns that if railways are to survive as a substantial form of transport in industrialized nations, the fullest use of existing rights-of-way and the most effective methods of controlling traffic must have first priority.
