Approaching Positive Train Control (PTC) for Robot Trains

Alas we make but a few baby steps to PTC

Not Positive Train Control

While this implementation is NOT a "Positive Train Control" (PTC) system as defined for the Prototype, we believe it does incorporate movement authorities and track speed control components of the PTC implementation challenge. Our implementation seems similar to the "Precision Control System" that UP and GE implemented in the 1990s. That system involved a "moving block operation, which adjusts a 'safe'  zone' around a train based on its speed and location".

The PTC characteristics and this layout's compliance details are:
