The Railways of the Future

See the link

IT2RAIL was present at the workshop “Railways of the future”, organised by CEN-CENELEC in cooperation with CER, Shift2Rail, UNIFE and UITP.  Philippe Citroen, Director General of UNIFE, reminded the importance of standards for the success of railways products. Libor Lochman, Executive Director of CER, highlighted the need for an intermodal regulatory path. Guido di Pasquale, senior Manager of UITP, presented the unsustainable scenario which will appear in our cities without proper actions to improve public transport. The key objective of a “User centric mobility service” was illustrated by Giorgio Travaini, head of research and innovation at Shift2Rail (picture). Guido di Pasquale added that a transfer of semantic interoperability in the sector of transport is needed.
All these points support the IT2Rail approach and confirm the validity of its results.
