Seminar List for 2016-03-09

On March 9th 2016 in London transport industry leaders meet for the 3rd Annual Communications Based Train Control conference held by Sagacity Media Ltd. Communications based signalling technology can transform the rail industry, providing numerous benefits such as increasing capacity, operational efficiency, reducing headway and improving the ability to respond to growing passenger demand. Successful implementation of new systems poses significant challenges to infrastructure owners and operators in relation to project management, systems integration, CBTC and ETCS convergence, cost and maintenance readiness, safety and testing assessments, data analytics and interoperability from an engineering, technical and strategic planning perspective. Join us on March 9th in London as we provide in depth case studies on best practice, lessons learned and deployment strategies.
