Announcing two further speakers at CRA’s annual Risk Forum on 5th & 6th October 2016 in Stratford upon Avon.
Topic: Automating train protection – the early successes and pitfalls
Traditionally the control of trains, including stopping at red signals, relied solely on the actions of the driver based on him/her observing the lineside signals. Following a number of notable train accidents in the late 1980’s and 1990’s technological solutions were sought to provide automatic train protection that would initiate the train brakes if the driver failed to do so in time.
This presentation considers the technology that was introduced and discusses both the successes achieved and the pitfalls that resulted from the influence on driver behaviour and unintended consequences that emerged.
