THE USE OF COMPUTER SCIENCE FOR AUTOMATING RAILWAY OPERATING PROCESSES

DER EINSATZ DER INFORMATIK ZUR AUTOMATISIERUNG DER BETRIEBSVORGANGE BEI DEN EISENBAHNEN

The author describes the role of data processing for automating operational tasks on the railways; he shows some systems already operating, or being set up and points out briefly the problems and difficulties with these solutions. Where automating isolated operations is concerned, for example train movements and shunting, there is the problem of meeting safety and reliability conditions. Starting from the automation of separate individual operations, development leads to control within a system with the aim of optimising the pattern of all operations and processes as a whole, as far as reliability, productivity and economic viability are concerned.
