Abstract

Software components for simulation of guideway transit systems J Rodriguez ABSTRACT This paper describes software components for simulating a wide range of guideway transit systems. The objective is to build a library of object classes wnicn can be reused in different applications. The developed program presents the following features: provision of on-line graphical animation, user interaction with all simulation objects and data collection and visualisation Two applications have been been created with the proposed object classes. 1 INTRODUCTION Utw Uic W years, INRETS has developed various simulation programs for the puipo&e 0! assessing guideway transit systems ([1],[2],[3]) To avoid unnecessary software developments, a set of software components has been created which can be reused for future simulation applications. We have chosen an object oriented programming approach and Smalltalk 80 as software development environment. Section 2 presents some concepts an
