EA UK Chapter Technical Talk on the Digital Railway

To close the year, the UK Chapter held a technical talk on the 19th November 2019, covering the topic of the Digital Railway. 

Presented by Ben Ting MIEAust CPEng who is Head of Technology and Innovation at Thales Ground Transportation Systems, the talk gave an overview of the evolution of railway signalling, suited for a general engineering audience. 

The talk shed light on the level of complexity behind such systems to assure safety and provide reliable capacity and performance, even though the underlying principles of operation are relatively straightforward. 

The evening was well attended, and was a great end to a busy year for the UK Chapter.
