International Rail Quality Board (IRQB): a strong tool to push for better Quality through IRIS Certification™.
13:30- 14:30 Capgemini
"How to leverage your immersive systems verification and validation with Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality "
How industry insights into the future of immersive technology?
Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies are increasingly becoming very popular. Countless new possibilities have opened up for VR and AR in the industrial sectors alike : VR is nowadays an uncontested provider of industrial added value. Capgemini will showcase how we apply this leverageable technology at ALSTOM Transports for their validation process through 2 applications : Virtual Train and Virtual Design.

Seminars and Presentations:
10:30-11:00 D&T Srl
Transport and crowd simulators
A brief overview about our simulators and their use, we speak about railway simulation, local transport simulation and dynamic study of crowds.
11:00-12:00 Lucchini RS SpA
Integrated Solutions for Wheelset Maintenance 4.0
It has always been the goal of Entities in charge of Maintenance (ECM) to find solutions for the restoration of railway wheelsets that are economic and integrated (considering the wheelset as a single subsystem), without ever disregarding the safety of the vehicle and the regulations in force. The experience and the continuous research of Lucchini RS contribute to achieving this goal through innovative product, service or process solutions, both in terms of maintenance and retrofit. Digital Innovation drives and speeds up the transition of the Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) by Lucchini RS in the customer's workshops as well as in the LRS Group's plants, which are always aim of ambitious investments.
12:05-13:05 Stratasys GmbH
The Benefits of Additive Manufacturing for the Railway Industry
Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing can help to address the issue of the Railway Industry obsolete parts, reduce whole life rolling stock costs and enable vehicles to remain in passenger service for longer. AM innovation also has the added potential to lower costs for train operating companies, as they can produce low run parts as needed, rather than mass manufacturing vast quantities. 3D Printing advanced, rail-certified, materials coupled with innovative additive manufacturing solutions offer huge potential to replace traditional manufacturing for a diverse range of applications within the rail industry, enabling the production of parts on-demand – both cost-effectively and efficiently – eradicating the need for obsolete inventory and improving railway companies’ ability to service their customers.
13:10-14:10 Rail Baltica
Rail Baltica: a greenfield megaproject to enable a new economic corridor in North East Europe
Rail Baltica is one of Europe’s leading infrastructure programmes: a completely new 870km corridor integrating the Baltic states with the European railway ecosystem. Currently in its design phase, this European added value project provides exciting opportunities for the international supplier community and future passenger and freight service providers.
