Abstract

The LIPARI project consists of defining and simulating control-command and traffic management solutions to handle extremely dense traffic flows with a satisfactory degree of regularity. It is based on the ERTMS2 control-command system and describes the target architecture of a future traffic management system essentially combining semi-automatic traffic control and traffic flow modules; the regularity standards achieved with this system will be evaluated by means of simulation, in relation to a so-called reference system. Keywords: punctuality, high-density, ERTMS 2, automatic driving, dispatching, smoothly flowing traffic, route control, optimisation software, simulation. 1 Introduction To cater to the prospect of a sharp upsurge in traffic on the French railway network, research in hand in the SNCF’s Research and Technology Division has to focus, in part
