Abstract

This paper presents a multi-train simulator for railway networks. The main use of this traffic flow simulator is to serve as a test bench for traffic control strategies. The most interesting features of this particular simulator are twofold: modularity and generality. The traffic flow simulator is build up with three independent components: (1) a signalling and interlocking simulator, (2) a train movement (running and dwell time) module and (3) an automatic route-setting module. This structure of modules does not depend on the particular characteristics of each railway system. 1 Introduction The work presented in this paper is a result of a long time co-operation between Dimetronic Signals and Institute de Investigacion Tecnologica (IIT) in simulation, analysis and regu
