AN EXPERIMENTAL APPLICATION OF MICROPROCESSORS TO RAILWAY SIGNALLING

The Research & Development Division of British Rail is engaged in a programme of development which, it is hoped, will result in a microprocessor-based alternative to the electromechanical interlocking equipment used in present-day signalling systems. An alternative system must match the outstanding safety and reliability of present-day signalling technology, which has evolved over a long period of time.
