If you don’t work in the marine industry, you might not be aware of the extent of technical advancements that have been taking place in the sector over recent years. This has resulted in a massive increase in project complexity which has created many challenges for the people in charge of electrical system integration.
Today I’m going to be talking about the increase in complexity of rolling stock and off track devices in the rail industry, and how they are presenting a whole set of new challenges for electrical engineers. Engineering buzz phrases that might traditionally be associated with automotive companies are now top of the agenda. Platform design, among many others, is a design approach that the major players are using to reduce design cycle time and development costs.
