The control problems associated with the operation of a network of automatically controlled closely spaced high-speed vehicles are considered. A system operating concept based on the synchronous moving-cell approach to individual vehicle control is presented. The need for a network traffic-management strategy is pointed out and one such strategy, called cycle preprogramming, is discussed. Finally, a study of the efficiency of the cycle preprogramming traffic-management strategy is described.
