Park Signalling was invited by the RISSB, to present at a recent Horizons Program 2.0 event in Brisbane, Australia. The presentation was undertaken by Ian Allison, Business Development Director, 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 (RCM) and product development within a number of industries including rail. This continued with a review of Unipart Rail solutions and one current Park Signalling product development for the digital age, in the form of their DiBloC (Next Generation Digital Single Line Control) product. This was followed with a lively question and answer session regarding RCM solutions.
The RISSB has recently been offering a unique opportunity to up and coming technical professionals in the rail industry, to be part of shaping rail’s technical future. The Horizons Program 2.0 has provided a forum for knowledge sharing and learning with a focus on cutting-edge technology and innovation. Its aim is to extend the participant’s professional network on a national scale both within and outside the rail industry and provide participants with the skills to drive and manage change. It also encourages young professionals to provide technical input into RISSB’s and the rail industry’s future and assists in improving the safety and productivity of the rail industry through participation in the development of RISSB products.
The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) supports the Australian rail industry by coordinating the development of Standards, Codes of Practice, Guidelines and Rules and we would like to thank the RISSB in Australia for the opportunity to present at this key event.
