Human errors, as well as deliberate sabotage, pose a considerable danger to passengers riding on the modern railways and have created disastrous consequences. To protect civilians against both intentional and unintentional threats, rail transportation has become increasingly automated. Railway Safety, Reliability, and Security: Technologies and Systems Engineering provides engineering students and professionals with a collection of state-of-the-art methodological and technological notions to support the development and certification of Areal-time safety-criticalA railway control systems, as well as the protection of rail transportation infrastructures.Obviously, jointless track circuits avoid the problem created by longitudinal current, but for many legacy signalling systems it remains an unrecognized or under-estimated hazard. The hazard analysis is concerned with the risk that the trainanbsp;...
