THE REVIEW AND EVALUATION OF THE ECONOMIC AND TECHNICAL RESULTS OF THE AUTOMATION OF METROPOLITAN RAILWAYS. EFFECTS OF THE ENERGY CRISIS ON THEIR OPERATION

After noting that automation is particularly suitable for operations of metropolitan railways, this report to the UITP 1975 International Congress summarizes the results of a survey of technical and economic results of automated train running and station operations. The objectives and evaluations of automation are listed, with the need for analyses based on multiple criteria being stressed. The potential for minimizing energy consumption through automatic train operation is also discussed.
