The technical committee Railroad Systems and Applications (RSA) aims at stimulating innovative theories, techniques and applications for intelligent railroad systems. In particular:
- Make the railroad systems to be safe and smart;
- Provide intelligent and friendly service to railroad passengers and goods;
- Optimize operations and control of railroad systems to guarantee high-standard efficiency.
The RSA technical committee promotes research activities and knowledge transfer in topics like (not limited to) capacity assessment, line planning, train scheduling, rolling stock and crew scheduling, traffic management, train control, electrical and electronics engineering and information technologies applied to intelligent railroad industries, to reduce the gap between practical demand and academic supply.
