TCS Mass Transit iteratively carries out real-time traffic predictions, conflicts identification and resolution.
TCS Mass Transit functionalities are based on a complex mathematical representation which accurately models the real problem. In particular, train controls, operating restrictions and traffic preferences are all embedded in the model. This allows for accurate traffic prediction and regulation.
Traffic Controls: this module identifies a suitable mix of dispatching decisions in order to meet targets and requirements. Such decisions include trains scheduling, routing and speed control.
Major targets: punctuality, regularity, energy-efficiency, passenger satisfaction and train coordination.
TCS Mass Transit is composed by two indipendent modules, TCS-Mass Line and TCS-Mass Terminal Station:
