Features In Focus
Automatic Train Driving
SSI Automatic Train Driving (ATD) lets the SSI software to drive your trains for you! Record train movements (routes) on your layout then set your signalling routes and SSI will select and play back the matching recording.
ATD is fully integrated with the SSI route setting system and can be used with or without track circuits.
See YouTube videos of ATD in action:

|Route setting is supported in all modes. When operated as an IECC system, SSI implements full Entry/Exit routing and complies with BR Railtrack/IECC mouse operation specifications. Signal operations staff of real railways will feel right at home with SSI!|
The route setting system is fully integrated with the interlocking system so that routes can only be set if the interlocking system allows.
|SSI supports advanced interlocking technology which enables you to configure prototypical locking of signalling, turnouts and track circuits. SSI does not limit the number of devices which can be interlocked or the logic used to interlock them because like prototype interlocking systems, it uses a purpose-built scripting language to enable total flexibility. (Example turnout interlock script)|
|SSI supports an advanced timetable system which can operate according to a real-time clock or a 'fast' clock. Events can be configured to set routes, activate layout devices, play sounds such as station announcements and signal box bell sequence codes.|
The timetable system is fully integrated with the interlocking system so that routes can only be set if the interlocking system allows.
With SSI you no longer need to worry about manual timetable systems ever again!
|SSI is highly configurable with its many optional features. While it offers extensive functionality, it is completely up to the operator how much of the functionality is configured for use in the software. SSI provides the flexibility of letting you choose your method of layout operation.|
SSI can work with Conventional DC or DCC layouts with suitable hardware systems. Trains can be 'driven' using on-screen throttles (DCC only).
The use of interlocking is completely optional. As a minimum, it requires turnouts to be electrically operated by the computer/SSI with dummy signals on screen. When fully implemented, interlocking can involve as many signals and track circuits as required.
SSI can work with layouts which are fully signalled or have no signalling at all, but of course, it will give its most reallistic results on signalled layouts.
