PROCESS CONTROL COMPUTERS APPLIED TO TRACK DIAGRAM INTERLOCKINGS

For the control of trains, primarily pushbutton interlocking, automatic block installation and alphanumeric train describer systems designed in modern technology are available. By means of these facilities stagewise automation has been achieved in the railway signaling technique; further stages were tested in the "Cybernetic Island Hannover", where the use of computers plays an essential role. The author treats the general problem of computer use for track diagram interlockings and describes the special functions and the technical solution.
