Abstract [en]

The demands on modern railway traffic are high. More efficiency is required, meaning better utilisation of infrastructure capacity and reduced energy consumption, while safety and on time performance have to be guaranteed. The operation of railway traffic includes many actors in different roles, at different organisations, as well as many different technical systems. Improved collaboration between the actors and more intelligence in control systems are needed to increase efficiency. However, today’s systems for automation are often badly integrated in the control systems and can come in conflict with the human operators’ tasks. Systems for exchange of central information such as the current traffic plan do not exist, making it impossible for train drivers to follow updated plans in case of disrupted traffic. This paper identifies the different roles involved in railway traffic and explores the concept of a real-time traffic plan (RTTP) to coordinate their collaboration. We present a Swedish system that is implemented and in use, allowing re-planning, and sharing of such an RTTP. We discuss general and specific design solutions for systems for train traffic control and driver advice and explain a way of introducing automation that supports the traffic controllers without interfering with their planning.
