Automating the railway

What has been holding back the wider adoption of automation in the rail industry? And what can be learnt from recent advances in driverless technology made by the automotive sector?

  • How far should we be prepared to replace human drivers and controllers with computers?
  • How can we demonstrate the safety and integrity of increased automation on our railways?
  • How comfortable is the travelling public with driverless/unattended transportation?

Tom Jansen, Global Domain Leader for Connected and Automated Vehicles, discusses the key challenges for automation in rail operations and explains how lessons and experiences from other sectors can strengthen the business case for automation in rail.

This webinar extends on a previous presentation given by Tom to the Institution of Railway Signal Engineers’ 2020 series of invitational Presidential Lectures.
