There is constantly increasing pressure on railways globally to provide greater capacity and improved service performance, whilst reducing investment, operational and energy costs. This drives demand for improved traffic management and train operation systems. Driver Advisory Systems (DAS) is a fairly new technology within railway/metro operations where Transrail Sweden AB has developed and markets a product called CATO. The technology gives very strong support to increased punctuality, increased traffic capacity and reduced operational cost (e.g. reduced energy consumption). In fact, the system can be used for Intelligent Cruise Control and for highly efficient ATO operation, better than the systems found on the market today. This paper brings a description/outline of the technology and development trends beyond current standalone Driver Advisory Systems, i.e. C-DAS, Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) and usage of the technology for ATO.
