SIMULATION OF THE AUTOMATIC TRAIN OPERATION (ATO) OF THE ELECTRIC RAILCARS FOR SHINKANSEN

ATOMIC is the automatic train operation (ATO) system, based on a minicomputer, which is being tested for the high-speed trains on the New Tokaido Line. The system has been simulated to study extension of its functions and to promote its practical application. Simulation by high speed digital computer allowed estimation of its control accuracy in advance of performance tests on prototype cars. Road testing is not easy and the simulation model can be used not only for its original purpose but for other train performance simulations.
