Accident analysis methods are used to determine the factors and their interrelationships that contributed to an accident. Various methods, including Fault Tree Analysis (FTA), Human Factors Analysis and Classification System (HFACS), and Systems Theoretic Accident Model and Processes (STAMP),...
Increasingly, control systems are being automated in industries that handle dangerous goods. These systems can both reduce and introduce human factors. A current example is the adoption of cab warning technologies and train control systems being deployed in the railway industry. Existing systems...
Train protection systems offer great opportunities to improve safety, firmly followed by economic and environmental benefits. Thus, they play a vital role in sustainable transportation, one of the main pillars of sustainable development. We reviewed in cab warning technologies and train...
Railway occurrence databases and reports are great sources of safety information, involving the semi-structured and unstructured textual descriptions of railway incidents or accidents along with numerical data. Recently, the advent of natural language processing (NLP) technology has offered...
Cab warning systems and train control technologies provide alarms to inform train operators of dangerous situations and enforce speed and movement restrictions to avoid or mitigate negative consequences. While these systems can enhance safety as the last resort of safety control, they may have...
The Canadian Rail Research Laboratory hosted the inaugural Canadian & Cold Regions Rail Research Conference November 9-10, 2021. Professionals and researchers involved with railway engineering had opportunities to present ideas, learn of new developments and technologies, make professional...
