  Using GIS to Predict the Likelihood of Rail Hazards. One recent approach is GeoSRM, which is a collaboration between Southampton University and the Rail Safety and Standards Board in the UK, where the project is mapping a variety of hazards and uses stochastic methods to predict where likely hazards could : Mark Altaweel.

The development of the rail-highway grade crossing safety GIS application is described and the creation of the spatial base map; conversion of existing rail­ highway crossings attribute data into a GIS acceptable format; the inter­. Structure of the railway intrusion detection system. The threat level of an intrusion behavior will be evaluated by the category, location, and moving trajectory of the object with respect to the track area. The information of the intruding object can be extracted by image processing algorithms, e.g., density-based spatial clustering of Author: Yang Wang, Liqiang Zhu, Zujun Yu, Baoqing Guo.

1. GIS Applications at the National Level. Use of a GIS to combine information on natural hazards, natural resources, population, and infrastructure can help planners identify less hazard-prone areas most apt for development activities, areas where further hazard evaluations are required, and areas where mitigation strategies should be prioritized. • Name: Advanced Railway Control System (ARCS) • Need: Rail Safety Improvement Act (RSIA) of Mandates all rail lines operating passenger service must implement interoperable PTC systems by Dec.

Spatial information system for predicting hazard at railway crossings by Roger A. Roberge Download PDF EPUB FB2

To support the prioritization process, various hazard indices and collision prediction formulae have been developed to assist with ranking the hazard potential of highway-rail grade crossings. A hazard index ranks crossings in relative terms (the higher the calculated index, the more hazardous the crossing), whereas the collision prediction formulae are intended to compute the actual collision occurrence frequency at the crossing.

TRAINFO is an information system for railway crossings. It provides train crossing information to help measure and mitigate congestion. AM. Source for live and predictive railway crossing information.

Data collected using. the concept of risk is examined and applied to railway crossings. The second section presents the hazard index mode1 developed for the Canadian Transport Committee (CTC) and then applies it to the Windsor Quebec corridor.

The final section describes a spatial information system which has the potential of identifying hazardous crossings. In this paper, train-vehicle crash risk at highway–rail grade crossings (HRGCs) is analyzed with a neural network (NN) model to return meaningful rankings of crash-contributory-variable importance based on different criteria, but also to produce dependent nonlinear contributor-crash curves with all other contributors considered for a specific contributor variable.

The National Transportation Atlas Database (NTAD), published by BTS, is a set of nationwide geographic databases of transportation facilities, transportation networks, and associated datasets include spatial information for transportation modal networks and intermodal terminals, as well as the related attribute information for these features.

A risk-based model is presented for identifying highway–rail grade cross-ing blackspots. This model consists of two prediction components: colli-sion frequency and collision consequence.

A graphic approach is adopted to identify crossings with unacceptable risks (high expected frequencies or consequences or both). Abstract The purpose of the Highway-Rail Crossing Handbook, 3 rd Edition is an information resource developed to provide a unified reference document on prevalent and best practices as well as adopted standards relative to highway-rail grade crossings.

The handbook provides general information on highway-rail crossings; characteristics of. Geographic Information System for Railway Management Hazem M. El-Bakry Faculty of Computer Science & Information Systems, Mansoura University, EGYPT E-mail: [email protected] Wael A.

As a result of the performed analysis, a new hazard prediction model, named as the Florida Priority Index Formula, is recommended to rank/prioritize the highway-rail grade crossings in the State of Florida. The Florida Priority Index Formula provides a more accurate ranking of highway-rail grade crossings as compared to the alternative methods.

Casualties were evidenced after these events in the media. Identification of locations along railway tracks where tree fall hazard is the highest, is thus an important issue. Railway segments with the highest hazard should therefore be inspected among the first. Geographic information systems (GIS) can be used for this type of spatial by: 6.

The passage of high-speed train may cause substantial vibration to the adjacent buildings. Accurate prediction of the train-induced vibration is crucial to the mitigation of such hazard.

The objective of this paper is to assess the impact of spatial variability of soil properties on the train-induced vibration. RAILWAY-HIGHWAY GRADE CROSSING WARNING SYSTEMS AND THE GENESIS OF STANDARD SPECIFICATION H ugh Kendall General Railway Signal Company INTRODUCTION Warning systems at railroad/highway grade crossings occupy a prominent position among the operating functions of a railroad.

Applications of GIS tools to ground hazard assessment for railway infrastructure Information systems (GIS) are well established as a technology that can store and manage data in essentially any form. A hazard to railway operations can be defined as the potential to directly or indirectly result in track failure or make track.

The work was a continuation of an ongoing project that resulted in the integration of rail-highway grade crossing safety data from various sources, such as the Federal Railroad Administration and the Delaware Department of Transportation, into a data base management system and the selection and implementation of the U.S.
