How to go from ERTMS islands to a seamless European railway system?
After decades of discussing and designing, the Europe-wide implementation the European Railway Traffic Management System (ERTMS) is finally taking shape. ERTMS is a European system that is created to replace the different national train control systems in Europe. The deployment of ERTMS aims to create a seamless European railway system and increase the speed and capacity of the railway operation. The implementation of ERTMS enables other technologies such as Automated Train Operation and Digital Coupling.
What are the latest developments in implementing ERTMS? And what are the most important challenges that need to be tackled before a real Europe-wide system can be achieved? How are communication systems developing? This and more will be tackled during the first conference day of RailTech Europe 2022.
Topics and themes:
The following topics will be addressed during the conference:
- Implementation of ERTMS; one European Railway System
- Automated Train Operation
- Digital Coupling
