Data Fusion of Georeferenced Events for Detection of Hazardous Areas

Abstract : When dealing with events in moving vehicles, which can occur over widespread areas, it is difficult to identify sources that do not derive from material fatigue, but from situations that occur in specific spots. Considering a railway system, problems could occur in trains, not because of train’s equipment failure, but because the train is crossing a specific location. This paper presents a new smart system being developed that is able to generate geo-located sensor-data; transmit it for smart processing and fusing to the inference engine being built to correlate the data, and drill-down the information. Using a statistical approach within the inference engine, it is possible to combine results collected over long periods of time in a “heat-map” of frequent fault areas, mapping faulty events to detect hazardous locations using georeferenced sensor data, collected from several trains that will be integrated in these maps to infer high probability risk areas.
