Abstract

The Chinese government is investing heavily in the rail transportation system to minimize the gap between the current rail transportation facility and the requirements of the country's expanding travel and freight transportation needs. The rapid expansion is bringing significant opportunities and challenges to both academia and industry. Intelligent rail transportation systems (IRTS) brings together an array of technologies such as sensor, communications, computing, and intelligent control to address various aspects of rail system management and control, such as customer service, planning and scheduling, dispatch, block control, interlock, and speed control. IRTS aims to meet important technological and economics objectives such as increased capacity asset utilization, improved reliability and safety, higher customer service levels, better energy efficiency and less emissions, and increased economic viability and profits.
