Description

Aircraft, cars and personalised transport have all seen significant introductions of disruptive technology to provide cost savings and enhanced user experiences. Fundamental stability mechanisms have been challenged and re-thought to include mechatronic or control system-based solutions to achieve system level benefits. In rail, the industry remains married to traditional approaches where incremental improvement can no longer offer great improvements in performance. However, challenges arising through increasing cost, decarbonisation initiatives and network capacity present opportunities to explore technical innovation to meet future railway demands.
In this talk Dr Hubbard presents concepts for future rail technologies and current research activities that intend to realise them. He leads Loughborough’s interaction with the UKRRIN Rolling Stock Innovation Centre
Refreshments will be available from 17:30
