This Asia-Pacific Webinar will take place at 15:00 Hong Kong time, 17:00 Melbourne/Sydney time and 08:00 UK time.

Note start time change to 17:00 for Sydney/Melbourne due to the clocks changing in Australia.

Secure maintenance operations, capable of integration with legacy and new build rail vehicles, are needed to protect the integrity and reliability of rail passenger services. This presentation will highlight potentially hazardous situations that might happen during software update and demonstrate how ‘Safety Related Application Control’ requirements can be met.

This project is supported by the UK’s Connected Places Catapult and being carried out by a team led by RazorSecure and in collaboration with the University of Birmingham’s BCRRE (Birmingham Centre for Railway Research & Education). It is funded under a UK innovation grant and includes open consultation with a broad range of manufacturers, operators, OEMs and asset owners.

To help us prepare for the webinar we would really appreciate you spending a few minutes filling in a pre-webinar questionnaire about digital maintenance – see the link below.  The results will be aggregated anonymously and used to inform the scope of the presentation. The overall project results will be made publicly available on the project website at the end of the project (Q4 2022).
