The 4th edition of the UITP Automated Metro Seminar will be held on 6-7 September 2013 in London.
Organized by the Observatory of Automated Metros of UITP, and hosted by Transport for London, the Seminar will offer a complete overview on all key aspects to consider in an automation project:
Strategy – Will the future bring automation to all metros?
Unattended train operation is a 30 year old “innovation”. What’s the real capacity for change of our sector? Is it the natural pace, in our long life-cycle systems, or is it a matter of barriers to overcome?
Introducing metro automation to staff and future passengers is a challenge, particularly in a conventional metro networks, where public and staff are used to a “conventional” status quo. Experienced networks present and discuss the key elements to consider to manage the transition or coexistence between automation & conventional operation.
The Seminar will also offer the unique opportunity to learn on London Underground’s own strategy towards automation.
