Possibilities of Obtaining Rail Transport Data for the Purpose of Updating the Source Data of the ERIC Mobile Application

Published Online: 31 Dec 2020
Page range: 1 - 4

Abstract

Abstract

The flow of information is important in any area of human life. That’s why people try to develop applications to support the flow of information. But then it is also important to protect information, which means that not all employees have access to all information. In practice, this means above all a competitive advantage over other companies in the same sector. The purpose of the article is to define the positive and negative aspects of trade secrets from the customer’s point of view in passenger and freight rail transport. The main goal is to connect the information systems of individual infrastructure managers and carriers into the ERIC MOBILE application in compliance with the conditions of modularity.

Regression Models for Determining Dependencies on Various Factors on the Railway Line Zohor – Záhorská Ves

Published Online: 31 Dec 2020
Page range: 5 - 9

Abstract

Abstract

Public passenger transport is presented as an opportunity to achieve future goals for establishing sustainable transportation systems. These systems are demanded from every member country of the EU for securing an ecologically friendly, fast, and reliable way of traveling in regions. Railway passenger transport is proven as a reliable and capable way of connecting regions. In many EÚ countries, railway transport has a certain gap, that could be improved without significant investments. In this study, we are focusing on negative consequences emerging from the cancelling operation of passenger transport on the chosen railway track. Most of the cancelations are affected by external influences. Individual car transport presents significant reasons with a noticeable impact on the potential of railway passenger transport in every region. On the railway line addressed in this article, passenger transport was cancelled in December 2019. This step was implemented for the constantly declining number of passengers. The object of the research is statistical dependence, characterized by the fact that the dependent variable is affected not only by independent variables but also by other unspecified variables and random effects. They are often called model faults or errors. This fact must be captured in a mathematical expression in a regression model. Based on this decision, it is necessary to seek answers to this situation using regression models that show the relationships between the number of passengers carried and the factors influencing their development. The main hypothesis is that the canceled of passenger transport was caused by low use by passengers. For example, with an increase/decrease in population, the number of passengers should increase/decrease the article verifies the dependences of the use of railway transport on the population of individual municipalities and on the development of fuel prices. Various dependencies (linear, polynomial, etc.) are used to test hypotheses. Testing of these dependencies will be performed using Fisher–Snedecor distribution. In the final part, the article also deals with the possibilities of using this line, as freight railway transport is no longer operated on this line. The research was carried out by a case study.

Clean Air for Indian Cities – Causes and Alleviation Strategies

Published Online: 31 Dec 2020
Page range: 10 - 15

Abstract

Abstract

Air pollution in cities across the world is rising at an alarming rate. This rise in pollution has an adverse effect on people’s health leading to breathing difficulties, skin diseases and even cancer. The pollution in cities is mainly due to fossil fuel fired vehicles plying on the roads. Different polluting gases and particulate matter are discussed in the manuscript. Indian cities are no exception to this problem. With the general increase in population in the country, migration into cities has increased many folds. As a result, vehicular traffic on the roads has increased polluting the city atmosphere. This pollution has turned cities into heat islands. Two major cities of India, namely, Bengaluru and Delhi are considered in the manuscript for discussion. There are no simple ways of controlling this vehicular pollution and regulating the pollution. Strong policies have to be made and implemented. The way forward is pondered upon in the manuscript.

Proposal Transport Services of the Airport Leoš Janáček Ostrava

Published Online: 31 Dec 2020
Page range: 16 - 20

Abstract

Abstract

The article deals with the issue of transport service of Leoš Janáček Airport in Ostrava utilizing public passenger transport. The topicality of the issue is the seasonal operation of the airport. The article aims to adapt the airport traffic service to passengers and airport staff. The number of connections will be dimensioned using the formula of transport services, which is based on the potential of transport services in the area. This methodology has been used on lines connecting residential areas but has never been used on lines connecting the city centre the airport.
