MODELING AND SIMULATION OF SIGNALLING SCENARIOS

NODE OF FLORENCE (ITALY)

The railway node of Florence is one of the most important ones of the Italian railway network on the north-south line Rome-Naples and it constitutes a complex node due to the presence of both regional short-haul services for commuters and of long-haul high-speed services. In such context, congestion problems currently occur in some hours of the day. Lift was appointed to evaluate the potential beneficial effects generated by the implementation of the ERTMS system for train distancing in the considered node.

Our tasks:
- Microscopic modelling of the whole node of Florence in various signalling scenarios
- Stochastic simulations
- Comparison among different scenarios in terms of train punctuality and frequency
