Generation evolution in GA application on railway traffic control

Ho, T.K., Chan, P.T., & Yeung, T.H. (2001) Generation evolution in GA application on railway traffic control. In Proceedings of International Conference on Computational Intelligence for Modelling, Control and Automation (CIMCA 2001), Las Vegas, Nevada.


This paper presents a Genetic Algorithms (GA) approach to resolve traffic conflicts at a railway junction. The formulation of the problem for the suitable application of GA will be discussed and three neighborhoods have been proposed for generation evolution. The performance of the GA is evaluated by computer simulation. This study paves the way for more applications of artificial intelligence techniques on a rather conservative industry.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
