The WDF 2015 at a glance

From 30 September to 2 October 2015, more than 200 railway experts from 34 countries participated in the 3rd Wheel Detection Forum in Vienna to discuss visions and trends in train detection. The audience’s general attitude was more than positive already during the event: most of the world’s leading sensor manufacturers, system integrators, consultants as well as representatives from academies and railway associations were deeply impressed by the international reputation of the Wheel Detection Forum as well as by the professional organisation and the high quality of the lectures.

“The WDF is an important event: it brings together both system operators and system integrators for a general discussion around wheel detection and the problems affecting modern railways. It has a wide variety of topics – which come together and challenge people to generate ideas allowing them to discuss and transfer approaches and technologies from one area to another.”

“This forum for me is one of the most interesting because it takes a very small topic and really puts a lot of light into it, because I don’t think that wheel detectors get enough attention in a wider perspective in other venues.”
