JSC NIIAS performed a great work for integration of modern minimally manned technologies into automated hump yards. It is proposed to create a system – “digital station” – which provides generalization of initial information obtained from all devices functioning on a station. Proposed system also provides the consistency verification, elimination of information redundancy and formation of the real-time information models about trains and cars inside marshalling yard. Technical equipment of digital station can provide several aspects. Firstly, it provides complex automation of technical operation control over marshalling yard in real-time mode based on merging of low-level automatics and information planning systems. Secondly, it eliminates the hand input of the information about operations connected with car motion inside station. As well, it optimizes the hand input of the information about technological operations, beginning and end of which can be fixed only by using hand input of information by operational-dispatch or maintain staff via the automated workplaces. Technical aspects of digital station are proposed to be implemented based on system of control and preparation of information about moving of cars and locomotives inside station in real-time mode (SKPI PVL RV).
