Abstract

A minimum headway on a moving block system is discussed. Two different control concepts of the moving block system are defined. To obtain an optimum driving pattern which realizes a minimum- headway and least running-time, a genetic algorithm (GA) is introduced. The result shows that the minimum train headway simply decreases to 40km/h and thereafter the same values is kept in spite of a speed increase. And multiple-step braking operation is required at train stopping to a station from high speed running. 1 . Introduction A moving block system is one of the most effective solution to realize high-density train running^. Supposing a train decelerates continuously from a maximum speed to a stopping point at a station, this operation is named a single-ste
