Abstract:   (6584 Views)

The paper discusses the current state of research concerning railway network timetabling and traffic

management. Timetable effectiveness is governed by frequency, regularity, accurate running, recovery and layover

times, as well as minimal headway, buffer times and waiting times. Analytic (queuing) models and stochastic microsimulation

are predominantly used for estimation of waiting times and capacity consumption anlong corridors and in

stations, while combinatorial models and stability analysis are suitable for network timetable optimisation. Efficient

traffic management can be achieved by real-time monitoring, fusion, analysis and rescheduling of railway traffic in

case of disturbances. Real-time simulation, optimisation and impact evaluation of dispatching measures can improve

the effectiveness of rescheduling and traffic management. The display of dynamic signal and track occupancy data in

driver cabins, as RouteLint developed by ProRail, can support anticipative actions of the driver in order to reduce

knock-on delays and increase throughput.
