Presidential Programme Meeting
14 Sep 2018 5:00 PM - 14 Sep 2018 7:30 PMOn the subject of "Big Data for Railway applications"Section: France

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.
