Title (EN) AUTOMATIC TRAIN CONTROL SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME DE COMMANDE AUTOMATIQUE DE TRAINS
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method for controlling the movement of plural freight trains (Figure 2) through a multiple route railway system with improved efficiency and safety. Freight train movements are precisely monitored and orchestrated (Figure 3) in accordance with a dynamic schedule that is determined through an evaluation of delivery requirements, coordination among all trains, speed restrictions and the effects of the track topography and train consist on train response to brake and power application.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé permettant de commander la marche de plusieurs trains (fig. 2) de marchandises dans un réseau ferroviaire à tracés multiples avec une efficacité et une sécurité accrues. Des mouvements de trains de marchandises sont surveillés et coordonnés (fig. 3) précisément selon un programme dynamique qui est déterminé au moyen d'une évaluation des conditions de livraison, d'une coordination entre tous les trains, de limitations de vitesse, et des effets de la topographie des voies et de la composition des trains sur la capacité des trains à réagir à la commande des freins et à l'application de puissance.
