We survey the emerging technology of ATO in railway systems in theoretical and practical aspects. The motivation, development and structure transportation model in operation research pdf existing ATO systems are explicitly introduced. The classification and a comprehensive literature review are presented.

The emerging requirements for current ATO systems and the future research directions are discussed. As technology advances in railway systems, one theoretically challenging and practically significant problem is how to use the ATO system to make the current railway network more efficient with higher carrying capacity, lower cost and improved quality of service by optimized railway traffic management and train operation. Specifically, this study first presents the background of ATO technology in railways, which involves the detailed description of its development and implementation in urban metro systems, fundamental features and basic structure of a typical ATO system. Then, we present a comprehensive literature review in this area, in which the current studies are generally classified into three main aspects, i.
