Systems engineering, rail signalling and control systems

Thursday, April 21, 2022 from 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Systems engineering, rail signalling and control systems

Hear the perspectives from two industry recognised speakers, Vijay Kumar and Myles Gatherer, as they share their experience of systems engineering applied in the context of signalling and train control.

Vijay will describe how the application of systems engineering principles helps major projects be more predictable and better managed using three sample projects. Myles will discuss challenges and highlight opportunities that should be sought from the application of GoA4 train control systems from a Track Asset Manager’s perspective. A key learning is understanding the GoA4 interfaces with track and operational infrastructure.

Please join RTAA and SESA Transport Working Group (TWG) for this event to hear from some of the recognised leaders in the Transport Sector.
