Whitepaper: PSItraffic Train Management System – safe operations with modern system architecture

Read about how Regionalverkehr Bern-Solothurn (RBS) is using the PSItraffic Train Management System (TMS) to control its train operations…

In the future, the Regionalverkehr Bern-Solothurn (RBS) will control its train operations with the PSItraffic Train Management System (TMS). The PSI control system provides numerous functions to meet the requirements of safe, reliable and modern rail operation. This includes providing information both to dispatchers controlling operations, as well as to passengers, the customers of RBS.

Reliable Train control

The PSItraffic TMS is the essential tool for dispatchers in the control centre for monitoring, controlling and optimising operations. PSItraffic supplies them with information – previously received through the signal box consoles – on modern screens, while also integrating fault processing and passenger information.

The system assumes control of the trains and generates from the operational requirements the specifications for the signal boxes, which are evaluated beforehand by the remote operational control for their feasibility. This results in stabilised operations, fewer faults, an increase in performance by taking advantage of time reserves, energy savings through adaptive driving and high-quality passenger information. Reliable train operations are thus realised where they are needed: in remote operational control and the signal boxes. The costs incurred to ensure reliability are thereby minimised – without causing the reliability of train operations to suffer.
