UNIFE General Assembly in Barcelona
The meeting was held at World Trade Center in Barcelona June 21-23. There were several inspiring discussions on the railway industry´s challenges. One topic regarded the competition from other new sustainable means of transportation, such as self driving cars and buses.
The railway industry suffers from slow innovation, expensive infra structure and slow deployment of new capacity.
It was a common view at the event that the railway industry needs to increase pace in innovation, increase interoperability, safety and define standards. All these initiatives are important to meet the increase demands on capacity, traveller user experience and cost efficiency.
Prover is determined to be contributing in the evolution of modern rail control solutions with our software automation solutions.
