AUTOMATIC CONTROL OF TRACKBOUND VEHICLES

Increased railway safety can be achieved by using modern electronic control techniques, such as the SELTRAC system for urban transport systems. Onboard equipment for this system has been undergoing trials in Berlin. The control center transmits data such as expected position, maximum permissible speed, and recommended speed to the vehicle and the onboard control system compares this with the measured values. Any discrepancies are corrected by forwarding control signals to the speed control or braking systems. The paper deals with the techniques and especially the safety factors involved.
