Optimization Models in a Smart Tool for the Railway Infrastructure Protection
- 1.3k Downloads
In this paper we describe a smart tool, developed for the European project METRIP (MEthodological Tool for Railway Infrastructure Protection) based on optimal covering integer programming models to be used in designing the security system for a Railway Infrastructure. Two models are presented and tested on a railway station scheme. The results highlight the role that the optimization models can fulfill in the design of an effective security system.
