Background The safety measures in Transportation systems are increasing in Roads, Rails design and operations, Vehicles’ ergonomics and new safety measures. United Nations General Assembly proclaimed a Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011–20 with a goal of stabilising and reducing road traffic fatalities around the world. Safety acquires a relevance when accounting for transportation systems especially to Public Transport

Problem Automotive industry adds latest safety elements inside vehicles, But the accidents and injury still exists.With yearwise planning for Safety Management we still lack a knowledge base of semantic relationship of various aspects of Safety in Urban Transport.

Results (Effects and Changes) The aim is to organise available data and create Ontology for safety of Urban Transport Safety. It will be developed as structure by analysis and formulate the knowledge that will be validated once on domain constraints and attributes. Ontologiy allow the creation of annotations in which the information is organised as a computer readable and understandable content.

Study at various levels in unsupervised, semi-supervised and supervised learning approaches are done to identify the best fit. The ontology will provide framework for hanging rules, probabilistic information and knowledge schema to search, add, update and extract or disseminate information, that can be applied in prediction, behavioural aspects, other issues in a common format globally along with decision making at real time in case of fatalities.

Conclusions The Ontology for Safety Management in Public Transport will assist Policy makers, authorities,researchers for creating a baseline of semantics of safety in a Transport System.This standardised system can be used in data sharing, analysis and knowledge management.Semantic relationship among various parameters and dependency in multiple domain will make this approach scalable and acceptable globally.

Prob The major concerns came up was regarding management of these information and utilisation of these information thus collected. The utilisation process should be strategically aligned so that multiple outputs can be created and used in various analysis of Safety

Governments are increasingly establishing restrictive regulations to improve safety on roads and public transportation systems in Urban and Rural context, with an aim of making travel safer.

Ontologies have been proposed to solve the problems that arise from using different terminology to refer to the same concept or using the same term to refer to different concepts.

The identified approach aims to develop a safe system semantically interrelated that can account all parameters of Safety in public transport.

  • Urban Transport Safety using Ontology
  • Semantic analysis of Safety
