BACKUP SYSTEM TO BART AUTOMATIC TRAIN CONTROL SYSTEM LEADING TO TRANSBAY CROSSING. PROGRESS REPORT, MARCH 1974

A program was begun to: (1) investigate problems of the Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) Automatic Train Control (ATC) system; (2) evaluate tentative corrective strategies; and (3) provide technical evaluations of other system matters. BART ATC problem areas include train detection and collision avoidance resulting from lost occupancy indications. Corrective measures, referred to as the Backup System, were developed to add additional memory capability to the ATC for the last detected position of all trains. Additional efforts are being made to measure the performance of the ATC and to evaluate the logic equations and the traffic-simulation programs.
