We are delighted to welcome David Bishop, Business Manager, Intelligent Rail, Ricardo Rail, to come and give a presentation to members about the European Rail Traffic Management System.
The European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS), of which the European Train Control System (ETCS) is a component, is being trialled currently in the UK and will become the standard system when renewals fall due. The principal objectives of ETCS are interoperability through standardisation, and reduced installation costs through minimising fixed equipment. For instance, ETCS Level 2 replaces lineside signals with a movement authority transmitted direct to the driver’s cab.
This event will be of particular relevance to those who are interested in railway signalling, as well as those who are studying on one of the IRO courses.
Light refreshments kindly supplied by Tracsis.
Please note that you should aim for a prompt arrival, as the reception area at the Academy will not be manned after 17:30hrs.
