An approach for the design of longitudinal control systems for automated transit vehicles using the vehicle-follower control concept is presented. It is shown that the spacing policy selected for system operations generates a dynamic model for ideal vehicle response during station keeping. The longitudinal control system should force the actual vehicle(More)
The objective of the paper is to present a description of the various control functions necessary for the operation of advanced automated transit systems. These control functions are hierarchical in nature and range from scheduling and routing to control of velocity and spacing between individual vehicles. Proposed solutions to the various control problems(More)
