An Infrastructure for Integrated Management of Urban Railway Crossing Areas

In this work, the authors present SIMPLE, an integrated platform that offers simultaneous and coordinated management of both railway level crossing and surrounding road traffic. The platform features a new radar sensor that provides superior safety in detecting lost loads or vehicles trapped in the level crossing barriers as well as a road monitoring system, based on novel paradigms for the Internet of Things (IoT) and including an European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) Machine-to-Machine (M2M) compliant Smart Camera Network (SCN) and Gateway. On the basis of the data collected by the sensor deployed on the field, a suitable computational unit performs simulations and provides forecast both on railway circulation (and thus level crossing closing times) and on road circulation. Results collected during a field test are reported and discussed.
