IEEE 1698, Guidelines for Safe Braking Distance Calculations - 2009 brakes down the determination of stopping distance for train control system into separate independent events. One of the most misunderstood portions of the model is Parts I and H (train deceleration). This paper looks at the reasoning behind the unique properties of these parts, how they are related as well as how to calculate them. Examples of applications will be shown and optimization techniques will be investigated to shorten the required safe stopping distance and increase capacity.
