SYSTRA RAILSIM Simulation Software Suite for LTA Singapore

The article examines the RAILSIM Simulation Software Suite, developed for the Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore as a useful tool for the planning and design of its public transportation system. The RAILSIM package includes simulation and design capabilities for many types of train control systems, including the fixed block and moving block systems employed by LTA. RAILSIM support for communications based train control modeling and analysis includes flexible menu driven inputs for buffer distances, communication times and system latency, under speed settings for typical operation, and guaranteed brake rate settings. The RAILSIM database also supports site specific definition of re-localization beacons, the wayside-to-train communications devices that serve to reset any accrued error in the determination of current position of each train on the track. Finally, RAILSIM accurately simulates user specific modeling of accried positional error and its effect on the performance of each train.
