Presidential Programme Meeting

Event Type

Technical Paper


On the subject of "Big Data for Railway applications"


This is the second in our 2018-19 series of Presidential Programme Technical meetings, based on our President's theme of "Winds of Change".

The event features a paper on the application of Building Information Modelling (BIM) to railway signalling, and a practical demonstration of a 3D modelled environment. BIM originated as an architectural and civil engineering tool that may appear ill-suited to use for railway signalling.  But in practice it is being increasingly used for a wide range of engineering projects, and it offers significant opportunities, both in its engineering processes and in delivering a project. 

The paper will be presented by Pierre-Damien Jourdain of Alstom and Yan Freson of SNCF.
