Aidan McGrady will give a presentation about the ETCS Interlocking Principles on the Paddington to Heathrow project. He will discuss some of the challenges faced in developing the functional interface between the RBC and the Interlocking, in order to maximise the benefits from deploying ETCS and how this could be simplified and improved for future ETCS schemes.

For four years he was a Lead Engineer with the ERTMS Users Group in Brussels updating the ETCS specifications and leading the development of ATO and GPRS specifications for the CCS TSI.
