    Abstract

    Increasing congestion problems lead to a search for alternative transportation systems. Automated transportation networks, possibly underground, are an option. Logistic control systems are essential for future implementations of such automated transportation networks. This book contributes to the design and evaluation of logistic control methods. Starting point is an object model that is designed and implemented. Then simulation studies are used to experiment with alternative control methods an system layouts.The author studied vehicle management and two-way track control, both primary processes of an automated transportation network. He developed several planning and control variants. Furthermore, he investigated the secondary processes of battery management and failure management. A case-study on an underground transportation system around Amsterdam Airport Schiphol was used to evaluate the different control methods.
