The usefulness of a ground transportation system controlled by synchronous techniques would be severely limited if occurrences such as link blockage, reduced operating velocity or equipment failures could be accommodated only by loss of system-wide synchronism. Consequently, this study examined in depth the strategies and techniques which could accommodate a wide range of real life problems. It was found that excellent accommodations could be made for all types of problems, thus assuring the efficacy of the synchronous approach to traffic management. (Author)
