Programme

Session 1: Introduction – What is Metro Automation ?

A real induction in the world of train automation, this session will present:

Definition of metro automation

  • Grades of Automation – from driving on sight to running trains without staff onboard
  • Typologies of systems - APM, monorail, driverless light/heavy train, unattended train…
  • Basics on train control command concepts and automation technologies
  • Overview of fully automated metro systems worldwide
  • Analysis on the historic evolution of automated metros
  • Future growth, trends and challenges
  • The choice for automation: What added-value and benefits for operators, authorities and customers?

What business model? From identifying the real costs of automation to defining ideal timing of automation projects

Session 2: Project Management for Automated Metro Lines - from Designing to Running (Planning, Design, Tendering, Construction)

Approaching an automated metro line project requires thinking outside the box of conventional rail: What are the key elements to take into account? In which ways does it differ from a conventional metro project? What kind of expertise is needed in house and what can be outsourced? Which players need to be involved when?

This session will map the complexity of an automated metro line project, offering an overview of the key project phases, highlighting the specific areas in which automation projects differ from conventional ones.

Session 3: Group Work and Experience Sharing

Session 4: Operation and Maintenance of Automated Metros

Building on a selection of automated operation models and scenarios, this session will show participants the potential -and limits- of automation technologies, in order to make the most of automated operation.
It will also reflect on the impact of automation technologies in maintenance – identifying the key areas to consider and analyzing how to make best use of the technologies, smart tools and staffing model of an automated metro line.

Session 5: The Human Factor & Customer Services

While technology usually takes the spotlight in metro automation projects, the human factor is in fact as central to the success of an automated metro line as the technology itself, and can even be more challenging in the case of a conventional system considering automation. The characteristics and operation model of an automated metro line require specific staffing models, with typically less staff, but more qualified and deployed in polyvalent roles along the line - What are their tasks and responsibilities? Is there an ideal staff profile and for an automated metro line? This session will present examples of staffing models for automated metro lines, highlighting some of the key challenges in finding, training, managing and keeping staff in automated metro lines.

In order to be successful, automation should also be approached as a customer-centered project. Systems and procedures need to be designed around the customer’s safety and experience and consider their view point and needs from the outset of the project. As such this session will also address some of the most frequently asked questions and concerns regarding customers in an automated metro line – from preparing the public and introducing automation to the future users of the system, to best practices in customer information and management during normal operation, and in different incident scenarios.

Session 6: Group Work and Experience Sharing

Session 7 & Technical Visit: RATP Case Study - Automated Metros in Paris

Opened in 1998, line 14 was the first fully automated metro line to be built in Paris and was followed by the first worldwide conversion to full automation without disruption of operations (line 1). In the future, line 4 will also be converted. In this respect, the RATP in Paris is one of the largest operator of automated metro lines worldwide making it a fascinating case to study and learn about, from the conception phase and construction, to the daily operations and maintenance. 

Upgrade of conventional lines into Automated Metros
This session will analyze one of the most complex scenarios in metro automation projects: that of the conversion of a conventional line to fully automated operation. To date, only Nuremberg and Paris have taken this step – which many systems are considering. This session will offer a comprehensive overview of automated lines conversion, building on the successful experience of Line 1 conversion - from the project organization to the technical challenges faced and the human resources and social impact of a conversion.

This session will be moderated by RATP experts directly involved in the running and development of these metro lines. In the afternoon, a technical visit will take participants to the maintenance and control rooms of line 1 (converted line).
