Research of Quantitative Safety Evaluation Techniques for Rail Systems and Accident Forecast Models

In order to propose a balanced method for assuring the safety of rail systems, the Laboratory is conducting research on quantitative safety evaluation techniques that will allow us to quantitatively assess rail system safety by carrying out risk analysis and others in advance. By analyzing the cause of past accidents and examining the mechanism behind the occurrence of accidents, the laboratory also involved in research to create accident forecast models that will effectively prevent accidents.
The findings of this research will allow the construction of a balanced rail system in terms of safety. It will also allow us to recommend maintenance and safety checks that have the strong potential of acting to prevent accidents.
