AUTOMATED UNDERGROUND RAIL HAULAGE: HOW TO PLAN AN EFFICIENT SYSTEM

Demands for increased productivity and better working conditions underground have in recent years accelerated the development of methods for automated underground rail haulage. Increased effectiveness can also be achieved with less-than-complete automation -- for example, simple remote control of trains during loading and unloading. The author explains how to plan an efficient system for rail haulage automation. Maintenance and trouble-shooting for such a system are also covered, and it is shown how to choose between centralized and decentralized control when developing haulage system design.
