Improving signalling and traffic management systems through digitisation can increase the number of trains that can operate and avoid the costly and disruptive need to build more tracks or purchase additional rolling stock. But it can also offer greater reliability, better connectivity and lower costs rather than just offering more services. These advantages can also be applied to freight as well as passenger and metro rail.
To help ensure the industry is able to take advantage of the evolution of digital signalling and train control our editorial team have spoken to a number of senior executives at rail and metro operators around the world and also sought contributions from some of the leading solutions providers in this sector for this, our 26th industry guide.
