4th Wheel Detection Forum: The Future of Train Tracking

Under the motto “The future of train tracking”, the fourth edition of the Wheel Detection Forum will be packed with presentations, discussions and reports on proven as well as future technology. About 250 leading experts are awaited to join the forum in Vienna. Thereby this will also be the perfect possibility for networking with senior decision makers from all over the globe.

Future of Train Tracking

Topics and Speeches

The future of train tracking is all about providing valuable information to operators by detecting and tracking trains and events. The conference will focus on state-of-the-art solutions based on wheel detection, axle counting and Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), as well as alternative tracking technologies.

The four keynote speakers will highlight specific topics that are connected with these trends, each in an individual manner. Jörn Schlichting and Philipp Bührsch from DB Netz AG will present their professional views on “ETCS deployment in Germany”. In view of digitization, Hannes Stefko from IBM will then talk about “Cognitive pattern computing in big data”. Finally, Dietmar Dahmen, visionary and innovation expert from Austria, will frame these topics by his presentation on “Becoming a master of change”.

On the second and third day of the Wheel Detection Forum, no less than 17 more speakers will give presentations on the following subjects:

  • New concepts for train tracking
  • Innovations with Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS)
  • Best practices in wheel detection and axle counting

Aiming Together for Future Safe Train Tracking

The continuous aim of the Wheel Detection Forum is to develop the integration within the railway industry and to lift the evolution of train tracking to the next level together with all interested persons. Thereby this international industry event provides an ideal platform for a wide range of railway experts to share their latest insights and exchange their experiences. Participants from global railway operators and system integrators, as well as manufacturers, consultants, researchers and association representatives will come together in Vienna to make the most of this excellent networking possibility.

The Wheel Detection TALK will be one of many possibilities to discuss and network in a special atmosphere: The location for this gala event on the second evening will be the Schönbrunn Orangery. Its elegant, yet reticent appearance is ideal for staging the Wheel Detection Forum’s gala dinner in a style that is both traditionally imperial as well as modern.
