Abstract

In this paper basic considerations in longitudinal control for small automated transit vehicles operating at moderate speeds and short headways are examined. The objective is the evaluation of control system designs applicable to vehicles using a linear induction motor (LIM) for propulsion and braking. Evaluation is based on dynamic response during nominal and emergency operations, sensing and communication requirements, and simplicity of controller design. The study is restricted to the vehicle-follower control concept. Basic control philosophies and spacing policies and their implications are discussed. Mathematical models of the vehicle and LIM are developed.
