Workshop on DAS/ATO and Energy Efficiency to be held on 10 February 2016 at UIC Headquarters

A UIC workshop dedicated to Driving Advisory Systems (DAS) and Automatic Train Operation (ATO) and their advantages in terms of energy savings will be held on 10 February at UIC Headquarters in Paris.

This workshop will be an excellent opportunity for managers, advisors and professional specialists to exchange experience and best practice of eco-driving in the railways and the most innovative technologies and experiences on the topic.

The workshop will be moderated and supported by Roland Nolte, Managing Director of the Institute for Future Studies and Technology Assessment (IZT) based in Berlin, who has participated in relevant rail and UIC related projects, such as EVENT or RailEnergy.

Experts in commercial DAS products, drivers involved in eco-driving programme developments, and manufacturers involved in ATO designs, will take part in the workshop. In addition, railway undertakings and infrastructure managers will have a special chance to meet and exchange best practices on all related aspects during the dedicated technical session.

Technical presentations on the performance and management of eco-driving including DAS and ATO will be followed by fruitful discussions that will allow for benchmarking as well as sharing best practice and the possibility of standardising these issues.

The final programme of the workshop will include the following points (see right).
