Abstract

the problem of determining a suitable schedule for the train traffic on an underground railway network is faced in this paper. In particular lines made up of track circuits (TCs) are considered. A `tentative' schedules is obtained by the solution of a mathematical optimization problem, which consider a simple model. Then, a deterministic event-driven simulator receives the tentative schedule as input in order to test it on a more complete model. From this latter phase some feedback may be sent to the optimization module, so as to perform an adaptive procedure to find a schedule which satisfies both the system dynamic and safety constraints imposed by the presence of the TCs. The obtained solution is found neglecting the stochastic characteristics of the system.
