HYDRO PNEUMATIC MECHANICAL ENERGY ABSORBER ENHANCING PASSIVE SAFETY OF A MOTOR VEHICLE

Marijonas BOGDEVIČIUS/ Rolandas VITKŪNAS

The purpose of this paper is to describe and analyse a mechanical device designed to enhance the safety of a motor vehicle. The topic is addressed by analysing the method of absorbing kinetic energy during a car collision with an obstacle. The article analyses opportunities to convert motor vehicle’s kinetic energy into another type of energy in the case of collision. For this purpose, various mechanical, hydraulic or pneumatic devices are normally used. Such devices are designed to absorb colli(..)

MODELING OF PASSENGERS’ CHOICE USING INTELLIGENT AGENTS WITH REINFORCEMENT LEARNING IN SHARED INTERESTS SYSTEMS; A BASIC APPROACH

Sergey VIKHAREV/ Maxim LYAPUSTIN/ Danil MIRONOV/ Irina NIZOVTSEVA/ Vladimir SINITSYN

The purpose of this paper is to build a model for assessing the satisfaction of passenger service by the public transport system. The system is constructed using intelligent agents, whose action is based on self-learning principles. The agents are passengers who depend on transport and can choose between two modes: a car or a bus wherein their choice of transport mode for the next day is based on their level of satisfaction and their neighbors’ satisfaction with the mode they used the day before(..)

IMPACT OF PILOTS’ TIREDNESS ON THE OUTCOME OF PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING

Vladimi SOCHA/ Lenka HANAKOVA/ Michal FREIGANG/ Jakub KRAUS/ Slobodan STOJIC/ Lubos SOCHA/ Peter HANAK

Presented work is primarily oriented on the experimental verification of the influence of fatigue on the psychological condition of the flying personnel, using psychological and performance tests. For the evaluation of a pilot performance,  the 24 hours experiment was conducted. In total, eight subjects participated in the experimental measurements. Eight participants went through several tests, including simulator flights, to investigate the effects of the fatigue on the results of psychologica(..)

COMPARATIVE LIFE CYCLE IMPACT ASSESSMENT OF CHOSEN PASSENGER CARS WITH INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES

Dorota BURCHART-KOROL/ Piotr FOLĘGA

The purpose of this paper is to provide a comparative environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) of chosen internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEVs). It addresses an LCA of both petrol-fuelled and diesel-fuelled passenger cars. The analyses pertained to the carbon footprint and respiratory inorganics related to the cars in question, considered against the relevant system from cradle to grave. The comparative analysis has shown that the carbon footprint of a diesel-fuelled car is lower than that(..)

MODELING OF THE RAIL FREIGHT TRAFFIC BY THE METHOD OF ECONOMIC-GEOGRAPHICAL DELIMITATION IN THE REGION  OF THE SOUTH-EASTER COAST OF THE BALTIC SEA

Oleg CHISLOV/ Viktor BOGACHEV/ Vyacheslav ZADOROZHNIY/ Oleg DEMCHENKO/ Vladimir KHAN/ Taras BOGACHEV

The results of further research on the creation of a mathematical model of railway freight traffic carried out in a regional transport and technological system are presented. The proposed logistic approach is applied to the issues of optimizing the management of transportation directed to ports located on the southeast coast of the Baltic Sea. Built on the basis of a comprehensive assessment of the transport infrastructure of the region under consideration and the performance of the operating co(..)

CURRENT TRENDS OF PROTECTIONISM IN SHIPPING INDUSTRY

Vlada ZHYKHARIEVA/ Liudmyla SHYRIAIEVA/ Olga VLASENKO

The purpose of this paper is to systematize the practical experience of the state protectionism in shipping industry at the current stage of its development. The reasons of protectionism in maritime transport are considered and the analysis of the world fleet ownership and flags of registration is conducted. The comparative analysis of the Dutch and Norwegian tonnage tax regimes and other current tax incentives in the different countries is made. The advantages and shortcomings of protectionist (..)

SAFETY OF COMPLEX AIRCRAFT ERGATIC SYSTEMS

Jan PIL'A/ Jaroslaw KOZUBA

In this paper, aircraft safety of complex critical systems in terms of the automation and safety has been investigated. We think, due to the automation, the role of operators has shifted from active control to passive monitoring.  Performing this last task even might be more difficult because of the monotony and needs of realization of the active control in emergency situation. The management of complex ergatic systems is relevant at the present stage of the development of science and technology(..)

FORECASTING OF THE ROUTE NETWORK OF FERRY AND CRUISE LINES BASED ON SIMULATION AND INTELLIGENT TRANSPORT SYSTEMS

Nikolai MAIOROV/ Vladimir FETISOV/ Srećko KRILE/ Darijo MISKOVIC

According to statistics, the marine passenger transportation sectors (both cruise lines and ferry lines) show a significant increase of passenger traffic and the intensity of ship routes. But new features of the conditions for passenger traffic growth require the development of new methodological transport models for cruise and ferry networks and new practical forecasting methods. Changes are observed in the fleet composition, mostly in the direction of increased. New approach for forecasting ha(..)

WAGE INEQUALITY ACROSS THE ROAD TRANSPORT SECTOR WITHIN THE EU

Miloš POLIAK/ Patricia ŠIMURKOVÁ/ Kelvin CHEU

The question of how to regulate the salaries of drivers working in the international road transport sector to balance the promotion of free movement of persons and the integration of the market with adequate protection of workers’ rights is rather complex. The range of problems of those seeking to ensure fair competition and fair treatment of employees arises from the fact that drivers operate across Europe but come from different countries where wage standards are significantly different, along(..)

SERVICE AND REST AREAS IN TOLL MOTORWAYS IN POLAND: STUDY OF DISTRIBUTION AND FACILITIES

Heriberto PÉREZ-ACEBO/ Ander ROMO-MARTÍN

Service areas are places next to the road that provide services to motorists like petrol stations, restaurants, hotels, etc. Rest areas are zones near the road with a parking and some facilities, such as toilets and picnic areas, which are employed by road users during their travels. These areas play a vital role in road safety as they are demonstrated to reduce fatigue-related accidents. Moreover, in toll motorways, usually used for long-distance travels, these areas become essential as they ar(..)
