Personal smart travel agent for empowering persons with disabilities using public transport

Jörn SCHLINGENSIEPEN/ Gudrun STOCKMANNS/ Edwin NAROSKA/ Oliver CHRISTEN/ Tobias BOLTEN

Today's public transport is not easy to use by people having mental problems or those who are disabled. Traffic planning today is powered by online time tables calculating the optimal way to use public transport in terms of time and costs. Therefore usually a graph representing the public transport network is set up and algorithms taken from graph theory or operations research are used to find optimal routes. This is not suitable for a group of travellers having constraints in using vehicles, ve(..)

Assessing steam locomotive dynamics and running safety by computer simulation

Dāvis BUŠS

Steam locomotives are preserved on heritage railways and also occasionally used on mainline heritage trips, but since they are only partially balanced reciprocating piston engines, damage is made to the railway track by dynamic impact, also known as hammer blow. While causing a faster deterioration to the track on heritage railways, the steam locomotive may also cause deterioration to busy mainline tracks or tracks used by high speed trains. This raises the question whether heritage operations o(..)

RAILWAY INDUSTRY ROADMAP IN THE STATE OF SANTA CATARINA, BRAZIL

Acires DIAS/ Jonny C. DA SILVA/ Heitor H. KAGUEIAMA/ Carolina R. HADDAD/ Mauricio URIONA M./ Álvaro G.R. LEZANA/ Dante L. JULIATTO

This article aims to identify the main requirements to strengthen the railroad industry in Santa Catarina by using technology roadmapping. The railway industry is composed of carriers, manufacturers, suppliers, operators, logistics, services and education. The survey aimed to provide guidelines for the Federation of the State of Santa Catarina Industry (FIESC) to develop its strategic plan for the next eight years. Based on the survey, the roadmap defined vision, mission, a list of key concepts,(..)

A framework for categorizing risks in High Speed Train (HST) projects: the example of the first HST in Brazil

Viviane GRUBISIC/ Elisete ZAGHENI/ Yesid ASAFF/ Acires DIAS

High Speed Train projects are exposed to risks of different natures, such as: low participation of private companies in the new railways construction, lack of skilled labor, high technology not available in the internal market, high costs with land acquisition, among others. Such risks if not managed properly can become real problems and compromise the achievement of the project objectives. The risk identification is the process of collection and description of events that can have negative effe(..)

DEVELOPMENT OF A SIMULATION TOOL FOR THE DYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF RAILWAY VEHICLE - TRACK INTERACTION

Ramy SHALTOUT/ Cristian ULIANOV/ Luis BAEZA

The importance of modelling and simulation in the field of railway systems has greatly increased in the last decades. Various commercial simulation packages have been developed and are used to analyse the dynamic performance of railway systems. However, although sometimes the user needs to analyse various non-standard solutions, the possibility to integrate further modifications into the structure of such software is quite limited. Therefore, in some cases, in particular for specific modelling a(..)

THE METHODOLOGY OF RATING QUALITY STANDARDS IN THE REGIONAL PASSENGER TRANSPORT

Vladislav ZITRICKÝ/ Jozef GAŠPARÍK/ Lumír PEČENÝ

Quality has a fundamental influence to the services in passenger transport. The main objective of transport is to satisfy customers’ (passengers’) requirements on the qualitative, flexible, fast and safe carriage of people and goods. Organisers of transport (public authority), providers of transport services and their customers have a different view on the perception of quality. This fact is influenced by unsystematic assessment to the quality measurement as well as by ignorance of the interacti(..)

3D LASER SCANNING TECHNIQUE FOR THE INSPECTION AND MONITORING OF RAILWAY TUNNELS

Han-Mei CHEN/ Cristian ULIANOV/ Ramy SHALTOUT

Railway tunnel inspection and monitoring has predominantly been a visual and manual procedure, which is time-consuming and subjective, giving rise to variance in standards and quality. Thus, alternative, novel, automated techniques need to be developed, for more efficient and reliable tunnel examination. The reported research aimed to investigate the application of a laser scanning technique for the inspection of tunnel degradation and structural integrity. The proposed method may either substit(..)

PROPOSAL AND APPLICATION OF METHODOLOGY OF REVITALISATION OF REGIONAL RAILWAY TRACK IN SLOVAKIA AND SERBIA. PART 1: THEORETICAL APPROACH AND PROPOSAL OF METHODOLOGY FOR REVITALISATION OF REGIONAL RAILWAYS

Jaroslav MAŠEK/ Martin KENDRA/ Sanjin MILINKOVIĆ/ Slavko VESKOVIĆ/ Dalibor BÁRTA

The paper presents a proposal of methodology for revitalisation of regional railway tracks and regional railway traffic, liberalization and competition in railway transport, quality requirements in regional traffic, principles of the contract on transport services in the public interest and with the current state of regional passenger transport in Slovakia and Serbia. First part of the paper deals with a theoretical approach of transport policy, transport regulation, suburban transport and intro(..)

CRASH SAFETY OF A TYPICAL BAY TABLE IN A RAILWAY VEHICLE

Emmanuel MATSIKA/ Qian PENG

Increasingly, urban and high speed trains are incorporating tables (workstations) as common railway vehicle interior furniture because passengers prefer seating by bay tables. Among table design characteristics, the most challenging is meeting crashworthiness requirements. Past accident data and sled test results have shown that in the event of railway vehicle frontal impact, occupants located in the bay seating are exposed to chest and abdominal injuries upon contact with tables resulting from (..)

RARE EARTH ELEMENTS IN RAILWAY INFRASTRUCTURE – POTENTIALS FOR AN INFORMATION SYSTEM AS A TOOL FOR OPERATORS AND OTHER STAKEHOLDERS

Frank MICHELBERGER/ Hirut GROSSBERGER/ Peter JUDMAIER

Rare earth elements are used for specific products and components in the railway infrastructure. The application of rare earths in this sector includes fields such as command and control technology, power supply and telecommunication. The demand for these items continues to rise, whereas the natural supply remains limited. This can lead to escalation of prices and can advance to natural resource conflicts. In addition, the degradation of these elements is often carried out under conditions which(..)

SIMULATION MODELLING OF VITÓRIA-MINAS CLOSED-LOOP RAIL NETWORK

Carlos Henrique Fernandes de FARIA/ Marta Monteiro da Costa CRUZ

This paper presents a closed loop simulation model that represents the mining logistics chain of the Vitória Minas Railway (VMR), Brazil. The simulator includes the loading process, circulation of loaded trains, unloading of ores for external and internal markets and the distribution of empty trains for new loads. General cargo and passengers trains are also included in the model, which, along with the queues formed in the circulation and the preventive and corrective maintenance of rolling stoc(..)

HOW TO FACILITATE THE MOVEMENT OF PASSENGERS BY INTRODUCING BAGGAGE COLLECTION SYSTEMS FOR TRAVEL FROM NORTH SHIELDS TO NEWCASTLE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

Daniel Connor REECE/ Marin MARINOV

This paper reviews current systems that either transport baggage or have the potential to transport baggage, as well as proposed systems, before modelling some of them in a modal choice model to examine how effective they would be if implemented. It was hoped that the introduction of a baggage collection system would increase the number of passengers using public transport which would be good for the environment. The specific location of the study was Tyne and Wear and a journey from North Shiel(..)
