Abstract DEVELOPMENT OF THE SMART RAILWAYS INFRASTRUCTURE CONCEPT WITHIN INDUSTRY 4.0 APPROACH The master thesis investigates Industry 4.0. Approach implementation in the operations of the railway systems. In the 19th-century, railway infrastructure was a substantial and constituent member of technical innovation, specifically in the fields of control, command, and signaling. Today though other transportation developing alternatives which in some points get ahead of railways, create real menace by generating more cost and time-efficient solutions which catalyze loop wholes existing in railway infrastructure system in the current time. These threats can play commendatory roles for railways to become more appealing for users and more cost effectual. This master thesis was developed by the author to analyze the ongoing process of digitalization of the railway infrastructure on the way to develop “Smart Railways Infrastructure Concept.” By investigation, all current projects in the EU aimed to develop Smart Railway with 4.0. Industry Approach, the author collected information about all technical innovations needed to develop Smart Railways. The master thesis contains 77 pages, 34 images, 2 table, 45 reference sources.
