    • Coloured Petri net-based traffic collision avoidance system encounter model for the analysis of potential induced collisions 

      Tang, Jun; Piera, Miquel Angel; Guasch Petit, Antonio (2016-03-03)
      Open Access
      The Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) is a world-wide accepted lastresort means of reducing the probability and frequency of mid-air collisions between aircraft. Unfortunately, it is widely known that in ...
