A Study on a Tram Signal Priority Strategy for Commercialization of the On-Board Oriented Train Control System Baek, Jong-Hyen; Sung, Yu-Suk; Kim, Gonyop; Choi, Hyeon Yeong;
For efficient and economical train operation in low-density railway line, on-board oriented train control system, which reduces expensive wayside equipment, is being developed. In this paper, we discuss a tram signal priority strategy which enables efficient and safe train operation when the developing system is applied to train-tram railway environment. Based on the well-known transit signal priority strategies, we develop a tram signal priority algorithm and conduct simulations by using model-based systems engineering (MBSE) tool. Various considerations such as operation procedure, linkage to existing road traffic system, applicability with respect to crossroad types, and so on, are also dealt with.
