Park Signalling Presents to the IRSE and IET

Park Signalling Presents to the IRSE and IET

Wednesday 16th October 2019 saw another healthy turn out of industry experts, engineers and students at the University of Plymouth, for a joint technical meeting of the Plymouth Sections of the Institution of Railway Signal Engineers (IRSE) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).  The presentation was undertaken by Ian Allison, Business Development Director from Park Signalling on the subject of Innovations in the era of Industry 4.0.

Industry 4.0 is a name given to the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies.  It includes cyber-physical systems, the Internet of things, cloud computing and cognitive computing.  Industry 4.0 is commonly referred to as the fourth industrial revolution and continues to evolve.

Ian interpreted this vision with regards to Remote Condition Monitoring and product development within a number of industries including rail.  This was followed with a review of a number of Unipart Rail solutions and three current Park Signalling product developments for the digital age.  This included DiBloC (Next Generation Digital Single Line Control), Tramsafe (Appropriate overspeed mitigation for Tramways) and GateLock (Affordable User Worked Crossing Risk Mitigation) Yet again, a lively question and answer session followed the presentation for some 30 minutes.
