Abstract

In last years the number of journeys on the European rail network is constantly increasing with consequent increase in risk for railway operators and passengers. New strategies, like integrating novel methodologies into innovative ICT (Information and Communication Technology) tools, can help all actors involved in train transportation system (managers, operators, passenger, etc.) in achieving improved human safety conditions. This paper aims at proposing a new ICT tool with an internal module for the evaluation of the safety level of the rail transport system. In the ICT module, an Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) based methodology defines a safety level of the rail transport system, considering both the railway infrastructure and the train equipment. The methodology outcomes a global index that describes the safety performance level.
