Enhancing Service Reliability and Transforming Customer Experience Through Digitally Enabled and Connected Rail Networks

Fast, connected and reliable railways are becoming a key focus on Australia’s rail infrastructure agenda. Sydney Metro Northwest is set to begin services in mid 2019 and the addition of $2 billion committed by the Federal Government to deliver fast rail from Geelong to Melbourne depicts the growing need for Australia’s major railways to harness technology and transform networks to meet future growth.

With a key focus on unlocking the next generation of rail infrastructure and systems to transform customer experience and rail services, the 2nd Annual Digital Rail Summit will bring two days of case studies from Australia’s rail leaders and organisations investing heavily in new transformation and innovations.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear insights on improved signalling systems, harnessing data and analytics, digital systems, user centred design and predictive maintenance.
