Train control and traffic management are playing a vital role as operators and infrastructure managers seek to squeeze more capacity from their busy networks. But in an increasingly-connected world there are many other ways in which railways can benefit from the digital revolution.

In the latest live debate organised by Railway Gazette on Wednesday September 9, a panel of high-level speakers will address the key issues:

  • What can digital technology offer in the search additional capacity as the demand for rail transport continues to increase? What is the role of communications-based train control and driver advisory systems?
  • How might advanced train planning and traffic management systems help to improve operational performance and reliability?
  • What degree of automation might be appropriate for main line railways, and what lessons can be gained from experience in the metro sector? Will ERTMS and CBTC converge in the next generation of train control systems?
  • Where does the digital revolution open up opportunities to improve passenger information, journey planning and smart ticketing? How far can railways meet customer demands to be constantly connected, through wi-fi on trains or the real-time tracking of freight consignments?
  • What are the benefits of real-time monitoring and automation in the inspection and maintenance processes, for both trains and infrastructure?
  • How will the introduction of advanced technology impact on safety? What are the human factors affecting drivers and train crew, or other staff?
  • Can the railway sector attract and retain the skilled staff needed to develop, operate and maintain advanced technologies in the face of competition from other industries?
