Railway transportation plays a critical role in safely and efficiently transporting cargo and passengers. Safety is the lifeline and top priority for any type of rail system. In recognition of rising global attention to continued railway safety improvement, this Special Issue, “Safe Mobility of Rail Vehicles”, aims to solicit timely, original, high-quality, peer-reviewed papers that collectively provide a portfolio of recent innovations in railway safety and risk management. All types of rail systems will be considered. Potential topics may include but are not limited to:
- Track infrastructure
- Rolling stock
- Train control and signaling
- Condition monitoring
- Human factors
- Highway-rail grade crossing issues
- Hazardous materials
- Data analytics
- Operations research
The submitted paper must present original research that has not been published elsewhere. The paper should clearly state its unique contribution to the literature and practice regarding railway safety.
