ATO: integration to achieve a truly interoperable system
Operational efficiency and the ability to implement projects which can increase frequency and capacity, cut delays and improve safety at the same time relies on the Rolling Stock and Signal Control engineers working together to optimise the performance from both sides.
Hosted with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, this seminar will feature speakers from the UK and European operators sharing case studies from highlighting lessons learnt and best practice from the implementation of Automatic Train Operation (ATO) on metro and underground lines.
This seminar will address the critical issue of the technical integration for ATO and the importance of Signal and Rolling Stock engineers working together to optimise performance. Not only will the event address the ATO implementation but also the associated regulatory requirements. Network with key players in rail from the UK and Europe to discuss ATO along with the future of mainline rail.
