CONTROL CONSIDERATIONS FOR SHORT-HEADWAY ACGV SYSTEMS

Command and control systems for automatically controlled and guided vehicle (ACGV) systems were investigated with emphasis on systems for short (up to 30 seconds) headway operation. Ten proposed systems which employ either conventional block control techniques or one or more large digital processors were evaluated. The conventional block approach and the central computer approach were both used in the study. (Author)
