STRATEG, A New Concept for Future Train Traffic Control

Tomorrow’s train traffic systems must be able to handle more frequent traffic, higher speeds and different companies operating on the same infrastructure. Improving train traffic control can be a cost-efficient way to improve punctuality and increase utilization of rail infra-structure. The main objective of this paper is to describe a new control strategy, and a prototype system derived from basic research. By shifting the control paradigm to a high-level control strategy, many of today’s problems can be avoided. The main goal for the traffic controllers will be to ensure that there always exists a valid plan for the train traffic. This plan can be executed by an automated system.
