Abstract

The Computer-based technologies are presently largely applied to the railway traffic control and automation. A high number of installations have been in operation for many years all over the world; some of them controlling very large network areas and providing an extensive range of functions. At the same time, other areas of application are being covered, like the simulation of operating conditions, the evaluation of different design alternatives, the introduction of artificial intelligence techniques, the maintenance management, the information handling. An overview of the most significant technical experience, existing or in progress, is g
