COMPRAIL 2008 the eleventh in a series of well-established and successful international conferences on Computer System Design and Operation in the Railway and Other Transit Systems, was held in Toledo, Spain, in 2008. Since 1987, COMPRAIL has provided a world forum for planners, designers, manufacturers and operators to discuss how they can benefit from computer-based techniques.
This book contains most of the papers presented at COMPRAIL 2008, representing the latest research, development and application of computers to the management, design, manufacture and operations of railways and other passenger, freight and transit systems.
The Conference attracted a large number of papers, divided into the following sections: Planning; Safety and Security; Advanced Train Control; Communications; Energy Management; Power Supply; Operations Quality; Timetable Planning; Level Crossings and Obstacle Detection; Computer Techniques; Dynamics and Wheel/Rail Interface; Maintenance; Rolling Stock; Training Tools and Technology.
