CASE STUDY: Advanced train management system as a future technical solution to strengthen weaknesses in rail safety

  1. 1. 30/03/2012 Advanced Train Management System 2 Advanced Train Management System Mike van de Worp
  2. 2. 30/03/2012 3 ATMS Concept of Operation Train Control System  Authorities  Bulletins  Pacing Guidance Maintenance Terminal Perform Field Maintenance Update Software Wireless Communications Onboard Equipment  Displays Authorities and Speed Restrictions  Warns Crew when Approaching Limits  Warns of Track Workers performing Authorized Work on Track  Enforces Authorities and Restrictions  Reports Location to Server Authority Management Server  Tracks Trains  Monitors Condition of Field Equipment  Computes Authority Limits  Transmits Movement Authority & Speed Restrictions to Trains
  3. 3. 30/03/2012 4 ATMS History and Rationale • Requirements - Improve network safety - Improve network capacity - Improve operational flexibility - Reduce maintenance costs - Improve network reliability
  4. 4. ATMS Rationale •Train Separation is no longer limited by signal spacing •Headways are the best possible based on train speed, length and braking performance •For Example:
  5. 5. 30/03/2012 6 ATMS History and Rationale • Key features and advantages - Enforcement of authority (predictive) and speed (reactive) limits - Protect against driver error - Authorities central to ATMS logic - Seamless transition with minimal retraining - Authorities delivered by data - Reduced Controller and Driver error - Speed restrictions delivered by data - Reduced Driver error - Centralised authority management - Improved safety and network management - On board location determination system - Accurate knowledge of train location and speed - On board train integrity system - Improved train integrity information
  6. 6. 30/03/2012 7 ATMS History and Rationale • Scope of Proof of Concept - Proves the core train control functions and improves on the existing implementation of them - Tight control of scope to maximise chances of success - 13 functions delivered over 2 stages
  7. 7. Stage 1 STAGE 1 FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENT 1. Delivery and display of electronic train orders 2. Management of equipped and un-equipped trains 3. Determination of train position 4. Speed enforcement 5. Coarse end of authority enforcement 6. Electronic blocks to current boundaries 7. Monitoring and remote control of switches
  8. 8. Stage 2 STAGE 2 FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENT 1. Management of bi-directional double track 2. A completely paperless cab 3. Monitoring of train integrity 4. Metropolitan interfaces 5. Enhanced electronic blocks 6. Multiple control centres (including handoff and redundancy)
  9. 9. 30/03/2012 10 Program Structure Partnering Board Project Manager Project Management Team Project Team Safety Subcommittee Independent Verification & Validation Agent
  10. 10. 30/03/2012 11 Independent Validation and Verification • Lloyd’s Register Rail (LRR) is the ATMS Independent Safety Assessor (ISA) and Independent Validation and Verification Agent (IV&VA) • LRR provides ARTC with advice, independent of Lockheed Martin and its subcontractors, that ATMS is both: – building the right system; and – building the system right. • In practice this means that LRR confirms that: – ATMS safety requirements are appropriate and adequate; and – a CENELEC compliant engineering process is being followed to develop the system.
  11. 11. 30/03/2012 1230/03/2012 12 Proof of Concept Territory Stage 1 80km from Coonamia (Port Pirie) to Stirling North Train Order Territory, 3 loops Stage 2 – 25km from Crystal Brook to Coonamia – CTC territory, Double Track, 2 crossovers
  12. 12. 30/03/2012 13 Project Status • Stage 1 functionality is mainly about controlling trains to existing block boundaries at functional level similar to existing signals and train orders (and overlaps can be removed) • Stage 1 functionality proven and requirements met during successful physical trials in February 2011 involving over 1000 test steps • This represents approximately 70% of the Proof of Concept total functionality and essentially proves that ATMS will work • Stage 2 is at integration and test phase with field trials scheduled to be completed in August 2012 • Stage 2 functionality is mainly about capacity improvements 1330/03/2012

  22. 22. Why ATMS? 4/2/2011 ATMS Presentation February 2011 24
  23. 23. • Reduced infrastructure - minimal trackside infrastructure • Enhance network safety - driver situational awareness - authority and speed enforcement - avoidance of signal visibility problems - better track-worker protection ATMS Rationale 30/03/2012 Advanced Train Management System 25
  24. 24. • The authorities and the location of trains and track workers are managed against a track database in which every feature of the track is accurately mapped • Central to the concept is electronic blocks of approximately 200 metres which are delivered to trains and track workers as authorities are issued, and handed back as trains progress and track works are completed ATMS Architecture 30/03/2012 Advanced Train Management System 26
  25. 25. ATMS goals: • Improve network capacity - authorities to small electronic blocks - reduced headways, fleeting - avoidance of track duplication - facilitates more efficient track maintenance opportunities ATMS Rationale 30/03/2012 Advanced Train Management System 27
  26. 26. • Improve network reliability - less exposure to environmental factors - elimination of single point of failure • Improve operational flexibility - fast and slow trains more easily handled - rail cars don’t consume disproportionate capacity ATMS Rationale 30/03/2012 Advanced Train Management System 28
