The objective of the project presented in this paper has been to develop a newsimulator system that can contribute to improved methods for train trafficplanning and operation and to create an experimental environment for developmentof new control support systems and operator user interfaces. The newsimulator system is based on a previously developed simulation kernel,SIMON/TTS, which has been used by the Swedish National Rail Administrationfor off line planning experiments. The SIMON/TTS system has now beenredesigned into an interactive, real-time simulator where external control andpresentation systems can be connected via a communication module. Thesimulator system will be used for different purposes. Some of the most importantexperimental scenarios are to perform experiment with new user interfaces fortrain traffic control operators, to test the usefulness of decision support systemsfor train dispatchers, to evaluate alternative strategies for solving conflicts intrain traffic control and to provide a simulator environment for education andtraining of train traffic operators.
