Abstract: This study presents optimization of balise placements in a multi-sensor architecture for on board navigation system of a train, which runs on a track equipped with balise-based signaling system. Determination of locations of balises depends on a variety of parameters. Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Kalman filtering concept were used to find optimum places of balices in the line to reduce tachometer errors, which are one of the most important sensors in train navigation.
