The Innovation Hub

Proudly sponsored by

The Innovation Hub returns to Sydney in 2022 to keep you up to date with new trends and innovations.

Located within the Exhibition (Hall 1), the Innovation Hub will be the host area for the Innovation Seminar Series and sponsored seminars.

The Hub will feature live presentations from invited technical papers and market updates from industry specialists, together with sponsored updates from suppliers and manufacturers. One of the most visited areas with the AusRAIL PLUS 2019 exhibition, the Hub will again be a destination for all attendees, including conference delegates, exhibition visitors and stand staff to enjoy interesting and innovative topics for free.

Topics over the three days include:

  • Improvement in railway sleeper using recycled plastic material: A review
  • Integrated assurance in large infrastructure projects using IBM CLM
  • Operational readiness – A case study in rail, what could rail projects could learn from other industries
  • Using connected driving advice systems to manage peak electricity demand for a fleet of high-speed trains
  • Engineering system digitisation
  • Management of safety artefacts (Project Hazard Log) with IBM CLM
  • A modern approach to modern rail projects
  • HF use of IBM tools
  • Hybrid approach for roadworthiness acceptance of rail vehicles through wheel-rail tribomachine experiments and rollingstock simulation studies

Opportunities are still available to present a sponsored update promoting the advances and benefits of your products and services.
