Railway Vehicle Mechatronics: An Overlooked Gamechanger?
22nd October 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Mechatronics concepts (combining mechanical, electronic and computer engineering) are a key element of the design tools for most transport sectors: why isn’t this as prevalent in the rail industry? Research and several demonstrators have shown the great benefits of these systems applied to rail vehicles, so why aren’t they rolling out on the network?
In this free webinar Professor Roger Goodall and Dr Chris Ward will highlight some of their key findings, and go on to demonstrate how mechatronics can unlock huge benefits for the future of rail transport.
