In this paper, we present an object detection system and its application to plasma sprayed coatings implants with the classifier based on the Principal Component Analysis (PCA). In order to improve performance of the classifier, we used combinations of halftone images and gradient images generated by the Sobel operator. To improve the quality of plasma coatings we apply intelligent control methods based on artificial neural networks and Bayesian network for optimization the weights

USE OF SCIENTIFIC APPROACHES AND METHODS FOR PERFORMANCE APPROVEMENT OF SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS IN RAILWAYS
Recently, the issue of safety has not been whether or not Safety Management Systems are necessary to secure a high level of operational safety in railways but if they could eventually be improved. The answer is yes and that improvement can be done on the basis of well known (and adapted to the problems of safety) scientific approaches and methods. In other words, safety understanding will be developed into a new stage – Modern Safety Management System. The present paper discusses the possibilities for the introduction of some scholarly methods into safety management in railways.
