Mark your calendar: 10/2 webinar on Transit Agency Guide to Evaluating Secondary Train Detection/Protection Systems (NTI)

Learn practical approaches to evaluate the appropriate level of secondary train detection/protection systems (STD/PS) for a given communications-based train control system application in this one-hour, free webinar from the National Transit Institute (NTI).

NTI will host a webinar from 2-3 p.m. ET on Tuesday, October 2, 2018 that features the Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP)'s document, A Transit Agency Guide to Evaluating Secondary Train Detection/Protection Systems in Communications-Based Train Control Systems.

Presenters will review different technologies and discuss communications-based train control deployment trends and feedback on operations from rail transit agencies around the world. In addition, presenters will provide guidance for selection of an appropriate level of STD/PS, in terms of candidate technologies, product maturity, and potential risks.
