Optimised Headway Distance Moving Block with Capacity Analysis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The railway control system is designed to act as a safety system that prevents collisions between trains and that maximises the utilisation of the rail network. Different signalling systems are widely used to achieve safety, but to achieve higher capacity, these existing systems may have to be updated or replaced in the future. Combining moving block and aspects of relative distance braking, a novel signalling system is proposed in this paper. The simulation shows that the novel concept has an excellent capacity outcome. The safety risk is also discussed to ensure its feasibility.
