Interlocking Design Automation – The Process
A new process for developing Rail Control Systems
Imagine an infrastructure manager in need of a new rail control system; maybe a new line is to be built, extended or re-signalled to increase capacity or to solve issues with ageing equipment requiring more and more maintenance.
This is a complex endeavour, with many subsystems that needs to be integrated and adapted to meet the specific needs of the particular railway or metro with guaranteed safety.
In this document, we will show how you can avoid certain problems as long as proper care is taken from the very start of the project. We will present a process that gives significant benefits for both the supplier and the infrastructure manager.
