Presentation title:
ETCS – do more with less

In the first place, ETCS is a train control system preventing trains to overspeed and pass signals at danger. But ETCS could add more value to the overall railways system. Performance increases substantially improves the competiveness of railways. This is based on two elements: reduced headway and advanced traffic management. And there are possibilities to achieve this at relatively low cost. Thales implemented solutions, which demonstrated that ETCS is more than just a train control system. As an enabler, it contributes to performance of the signalling system.

The RailTech Europe 2017 Conference will explore the following three themes:
