Part of the Advances in High-speed Rail Technology book series (ADVHIGHSPEED)


The core of the active safety is the perception and control of system state. By modelling, analyzing and controlling the activities of complex system, so as to reduce the system risk and avoid accident. Active safety theory has spread into many fields including electrical system, power system, Internet, military system, machinery and electronics system and so on. Methods based on the mechanism model, data drive and so on have been researched a lot to realize the active safety. Specifically, rail transportation active safety also attracts lots of attentions. The authors have been engaged in this area for a long time, mainly including the active safety assurance of the rail transportation train, rail network, traffic system and so on. Fruitful achievements have been made based on the research team. In this book, the authors mainly show readers the safety region based active safety methodology and its application in rail transportation.
