THE IMPLEMENTATION OF INTELLIGENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS TO INCREASE SAFETY IN RAIL LEVEL CROSSINGS
Last modified: 2017-02-28
The most common accidents are caused by motor vehicles drivers (95%), who are unfortunately the most endangered in railroad accidents.
Raising safety awareness to a new level is carried out with technical and technological solutions and actions that encourage traffic discipline, drivers and pedestrian culture when crossing the rail tracks. To improve traffic information provided to vehicle drivers, it’s necessary to implement intelligent information system (ITS-Intelligent Information Services). Intelligent Information Services is the provision of timely and effective information of dangerous situations (real-time warning systems).
In this work is presented application of the level crossing geo-referenced data, on a HŽ Infrastructure railway network, to ensure accurate and timely information delivery to drivers arriving at the level crossing.
