The Golden Whistles
Digital rail technology can help improve short-term decision-making and reduce the time taken to recover services during disruption. That was the theme of the presentation by Alex Robertson and Andrew Schwarz of Golden Whistles sponsors Tracsis at the morning conference.
Tracsis is involved with several aspects of the Digital Railway project, including the first deployment of Traffic Management at the Romford Rail Operating Centre (ROC), sessions led by the Rail Delivery Group, and is also working with Govia Thameslink Railway on an end-to-end solution focusing on stock and crew. It is this element that was the focus of the presentation – the company’s aim is to provide better decision-making tools which can aid service recovery and provide high quality information to frontline staff, customers and controllers, all the while reducing the workload in control.
