CONSTRUCTION OF TC CENTERS TAKING INTO ACCOUNT DANGER DISPERSION IN LARGE CITIES

Almost all traffic control centers in Japan are configurationally hierarchical, including the configuration of their central equipment. Consequently, if a traffic control center in which central equipment is located should suffer damage from some contingency, say, an earthquake, the influence of the damage to the center would spread over the entire area under its control. To prevent such an unwanted but probable situation, Osaka Prefectural Headquarters has installed an attended control center in South Osaka in addition to the one in its headquarters and is constructing a traffic control system that ensures uninterrupted control should either of the two center computers fail from damage. Major portions of this system have already been constructed. This paper describes the design concept, progress of system construction plans, data communication method, man-machine interface, etc., of this system.
