Optimal design of ATO driving parameters for Metro Bilbao

A. Fernández-Cardador A.P. Cucala M. Domínguez

September 2011 - March 2012

Funding entity Metro de Bilbao

The objective of this project is the design and implementation of ATO speed commands in Metro de Bilbao lines. These ATO speed commands will be selected and sent to the train by the traffic regulation system in real-time. For each inter-station a set of 3 speed commands are designed, the flat out command and 2 regulation commands. The new ATO speed commands must comply with technical, operational and comfort restrictions and will minimise the energy consumption.

    Research topics:
  • *Energy efficient timetabling and train driving (Ecodriving)
