A model for ground transportation systems simulation at airports under centralized control
This paper formulates requirements for a simulation model designed to study the movement of all types of vehicles in the ground space of the aerodrome on condition that a centralized control system provides continuous automatic control of their movement and sends commands of control to prevent dangerous situations. Examples of object movement models in 2D space are considered. The advantages of using a grid-based space for analyzing the interaction of objects are shown. It is concluded that commercial packages of processes modeling with discrete events or packages of transport flows modeling do not provide the conditions for implementing all the formulated requirements to the model. There are formulated principles of building models that can be implemented using universal programming languages. An example of developing a test model using the VBA language in MS Excel is described.
