Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) enable the infrastructure manager to keep the performance quality of the infrastructure at an acceptable level. A KPI must include specific features of the infrastructure such as functionality and criticality. The KPIs can be classified into three performance levels: (1) technical level KPIs; (2) tactical level...

This paper presents a methodology to support decision making based on the tram wheel-rail interface condition. The methodology relies on the following measurements: tram failure log-files regarding wheel-sliding events, monitored acoustics data and open source weather information. The proposed methodology consists of three stages: 1) data...

In this paper, a decision support approach is proposed for condition-based maintenance of rails relying on expert-based systems. The methodology takes into account both the actual conditions of the rails (using axle box acceleration measurements and rail video images) and the prior knowledge of the railway track. The approach provides an...

Of the many crowd behavior models, very few have been used in assisting crowd management practice. This lack of usage is partly due to crowd management involving a diversity of situations that require competencies in observing, sense-making, anticipating and acting. Crowd research is similarly scattered across disciplines and needs integration...
