This lecture will cover the brake system which is paramount to rail safety and therefore is always an important topic for engineers. Consistent braking is also seen as essential to maximise network capacity which is one of the biggest problems on the railway at the moment.
Attend to hear about the new braking systems and how you could improve passenger safety through the use of new technologies.
