SIMULATION OF URBAN RAILWAY TRANSPORT WITH COLOR GRAPHIC DISPLAY IN CONVERSATIONAL MODE

UTILISATION D'UNE CONSOLE DE VISUALISATION QUADRICHRONE EN MODE CONVERSATIONNEL POUR L'ETUDE DE LA REGULATION D'UN RESEAU FERRE URBAIN

General evolution of urban rapid transit is leading to a reduced headway between trains in order to increase the transport capacity during peak hours. Any traffic disturbance becomes rapidly more and more important and it is difficult to maintain the theoretical maximum capacity. A conversational mode system, consisting of a 4 color graphic display connected with a computer enables consultant engineers to simulate traffic. The display gives A space-time, or speed-space diagram and the operator can modify it, using light pen, function keys and keyboard. Introduction of a disturbance in traffic flow may result in different kinds of diagram, according to the selected corrective strategy. Automatic regulation may be tested on this system, and later applied on real-time system.
