    Overhead line design has been in development since the first tramway systems were installed in 1881. History plays a huge part in understanding how to learn from mistakes and optimise our infrastructure. Looking to the future, how can we innovate on this power distribution method to create a high-utilisation, low-maintenance, reliable asset? Hear about the simulation tools used by TGV and learn how these methods now pave the way for new tools for designing, monitoring and controlling the OLE.

    The Quadrant:MK - Milton Keynes
    Sensors, telemetry and storage are now able to cope with a large amount of data. Analysing the information is a big challenge from a resource and economical point of view. The presentation will examine how autonomy can be built-in to infrastructure monitoring, to get the best out of rich data for planning and scheduling interventions by integrating sources, rules and information. The goal is to optimize the decision making process.
