Spårvägsforum kommer till Göteborg 5-6 maj 2022

Det har blivit dags för Spårvägsforums vårutgåva att äga rum i Göteborg den 5-6 maj 2022. Som vanligt bjuder vi på två dagars konferens med ett program fullspäckat av nyheter från Göteborg, studiebesök, nätverksmiddag och internationella utblickar.

Vad är Spårvägsforum?
Spårvägsforum är Spårvagnsstädernas största event och ett av de viktigaste arrangemangen som fokuserar på Spårväg i Norden. Det arrangeras 1-2 gånger om året och lockar deltagare från hela Europa. 2021 hade vi besökare från 10 länder. Intresset för svensk och nordisk spårväg är stort, och det finns mycket erfarenheter att dela med sig av.

Delivering a new vehicle to Gothenburg - Delivering a new vehicle to an existing system comes with all kinds of challenges and learning opportunities. In this presentation, Pär Bladin from Alstom will give us an idea of what they have learned when delivering M33.

15.50 – 16.15 – Tramway typology
Tramway typology - Tramway cities in Sweden are working together to come up with a basic common framework for safety. In this work it is important to organize different parts of tramways into different types, and this will the base for what safety protocols to follow. It is more challenging than it seems, and PG Andersson from Trivector will tell us more about the work.

16.15 - 16.55 – Trains with brains
Backed by data science together with expertise rooted in engineering and railway technology CEMIT is redefining sustainable transport on a global scale. European champions in innovation accelerate towards growth in intelligent railways. The technology with handling and visualizing large amounts of data provides predictability and constant intelligent monitoring of trains and rail-related infrastructure. Taking new snap shots of reality through frequent measuring and analyses (digital twin) depicts change, which enables us to track and follow and thus predict deviation and their consequences i.e., errors as well as opportunities to save money, effort, and customer-satisfaction. Traffic can flow smoothly, punctually, and safely. Meet Stephan Marstrander and Per Mörlin från CEMIT who will tell us more.

19.00 – Doors open for networking dinner at the Tramway Museum
Together we will enjoy an informal food truck tapas networking dinner in a historic setting. The museum is located at J Sigfrid Edströms gata 2, just a short walk from the nearest tram or bus stop. If you need help finding your stop, please ask at the conference. Before and after dinner you will have the chance to browse the collections of the museum. Please be aware that this is a live depot, watch out for tracks and it can get chilly, bring a jacket or sweater.

Friday May 6th

8.40 – 9.10 – A wholistic look at driver assistance
Continental Engineering has taken the step from the automotive industry into the light rail industry and develop technologies that not only avoid frontal collisions, but also systems that measure driver attentiveness, reduce driver fatigue, and improve safety for vulnerable road users. Meet David Ritzenthaler who will lead us into the interesting world of automotive technology being deployed on the next generation light rail.

9.10 – 9.30 – International outlook from Australia
In a rare international outlook we get a presentation about new tramways in Australia via link. This is a virtual interactive presentation.

9.35 – 10.00 – Safer bicycle crossings
Signage and well-designed bicycle crossings are important, but sometimes physical infrastructure is important. Here we will hear more from Robert Woerfel representing Seal-Able about one way of making it safer for bicyclists to cross tracks.

10.00 – 10.40 – Climate adaption of tramway infrastructure
Extreme weather like extreme heat, cold, rain or snow becomes more and more common, and creates new requirements for the tramway infrastructure to maintain service. Hervé Mazzoni from Systra will give us practical examples on how tramway systems have been adapted, and what to consider when we plan for future systems.
