The high-speed train with high transport speed and punctuality rate has become a leading tool of daily traveling. Compared with the general-speed railway transportation, the high-speed railway transportation requires a timely and automatic adjustment capability in the centralized traffic control (CTC) system. In order to improve the capability, this paper mainly explores the models and algorithms of conflict detection and scheduling optimization of high-speed train operations. They are

The mechanism of conflict detection and scheduling optimization is implemented through a case study. The simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed mechanism.
