Communication Based Train Control (CBTC): Are there any Downsides? by Prof Rod Muttram
CBTC is now the technology of choice for most Metro type railways, maximising capacity and supporting all levels of automation. It is increasingly used on mainline railways too; but what is it and are there any potential downsides?
Speaker: Rod Muttram Fourth Insight Ltd, formerly Director, Safety and Standards at Railtrack then a Director at Bombardier Transportation.
The Friday Lunch & Lecture Events have been running for more than 22 years. The Lectures are free to attend for IET members and non-members. All are welcome.
If you require Lunch it must be pre booked with both Tony Davies & John Fuller. Please also book the lecture as we may have limited room capacity.
The optional two course lunch with wine currently costs £17.50. and must be paid for in advance at the counter of the Faraday Kitchen, the receipt giving admission to the lunch.
If attending lunch, arrive before 11.45 and sign-in at the Faraday Centre reception. From April 2019 it is expected to cost £18.35. For attending only the lecture, arrive before 13.45 and sign in for the event; this is separate to the IET Faraday Centre reception signing-in.
