National Development Project
Within this research will be developed an automatic system for efficient reaction and notification in case of a railroad accident, while dangerous substances are being transported. Based on:
- tracking path of a train and determination of a correct position of a train at the moment of an accident,
- measuring meteorological parameters at the place of an accident, in real time and
- software for assessment of spreading contaminating substances trough the atmosphere,
this system will inreal time, track spreading of contaminating substances and enable making an estimate of the damage made on the environment at the place of an accident.
Based on this information, it would be possible to react according to the situation. The proposed project should enable data about the accident and assessment of endangerment of environment to be presented at ZTP and in appropriate information and alert centers. All data is automatically memorized with time entries, so it’s possible to reconstruct the accident that occurred. One particular part of software will be designed for simulating accidents.
