Railway signaling allows safe operations of multiple trains on the same tracks and also optimizes capacity of the tracks. This will be a very brief introduction to its basic principles and how they have been implemented over the last several decades with various technologies, from mechanical devices to microprocessor-based equipment. Application of the principles varies across different types of railways; here we will focus on rapid transit which includes subways and metros, and will cover wayside signaling, cab signaling, and the latest Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC).
Also, Karl Geist will present a mini-presentation on INCOSE's Technical Leadership Institute (TLI).
We use zoom for our monthly meetings.
