An event-based traffic flow model for traffic control at railway junctions
Ho, T.K., Goodman, C.J., & Norton, J.P. (1995) An event-based traffic flow model for traffic control at railway junctions. In Proceedings of IRSE International Conference on Advanced Railway Control (ASPECT'95), IRSE, London, pp. 163-170.
This paper introduces an event-based traffic model for railway systems adopting fixed-block signalling schemes. In this model, the events of trains' arrival at and departure from signalling blocks constitute the states of the traffic flow. A state transition is equivalent to the progress of the trains by one signalling block and it is realised by referring to past and present states, as well as a number of pre-calculated look-up tables of run-times in the signalling block under various signalling conditions. Simulation results are compared with those from a time-based multi-train simulator to study the improvement of processing time and accuracy.
