WHY SMARTRAIL WORLD?
SmartRail World has evolved to match the changes the rail and metro industry is currently undergoing. In a future where 70%+ of people live in cities, and the world’s population climbs to 10 billion, pressures on existing networks and infrastructures will need to be solved by innovative technology.
The growth of digital is disrupting all aspects of our industry from operations, signalling and train control to asset management, maintenance and security. Whilst rail companies and agencies are transforming into more efficient, commercially focussed businesses, often denationalised, cross-border and in competition with other forms of transport. Passengers demands and expectations and quickly changing, and with this brings both challenges and opportunities.
It’s not just the change that is different, it’s the pace of change. The rail industry no longer works with the mind-set of a ‘once in a generation’ upgrade. There is both the capability and expectation to deliver rapid technological developments.
To meet these challenges, new ideas, technologies and skills are needed and SmartRail World focusses on the essential business insight and resources you need to succeed.
