The traffic management system (TMS) developed by Cactus is adapted for the specific requirements of rail traffic. Because disruptions often affect all trains on the line, the quality of the traffic management system is critical to the operator.
A system for every need
A Cactus TMS has sufficient capacity to centralise the management of a large number of lines. But it is also sufficiently scalable to act as a local control system to manage individual interlockings.
Because we develop most of the software ourselves, we can adapt and add functions to meet our customers’ various requests and needs.
Planning and operating rail traffic is a complex process, however. An operator must be able to make correct decisions – fast. The trend in traffic management systems is therefore towards greater automation and more decision-making support.
Over the years, the people at Cactus have become expert at adapting the system to our customers’ needs, their existing infrastructure and neighbouring systems. In our projects, it is a matter of course for us to adapt and integrate Cactus TMS with our customers’ existing systems and to produce the communication protocols required.
The volume of information in today’s management systems is increasing and placing greater demands on the operator. Well-designed control rooms and command centres therefore contribute to safer operation, more satisfied staff and a better and more attractive working environment.
