The 12th World Congress on Railway Research (WCRR) was held in Tokyo from 28 October to 1 November 2019. ETH Zurich participated in the technical sessions discussing about intervention programs to improve performance for railway networks and its relation to the ongoing research at FORESEE.
The WCRR gathers academics, researchers and industry in all areas of railway research. Several sessions are organised to present and discuss latest technical developments in railway research and innovation. The conference, organised every 2 years, aims at providing an opportunity to overview railway technical development and suggest its future direction from the management perspective of the world’s railway operators.
ETH Zurich presented some specific work completed at its Infrastructure Management Group including various references to the FORESEE project. Concretely, Marcel Burkhalter presented how intervention programs can be determined for large railway networks using a genetic algorithm and discussed the effects and circumstances of using such an algorithm.
